Join Silver Spring Village as we commemorate the life and work of Clara Barton, heroine of the Civil War and founder of the American Red Cross, in recognition of her 200 th birthday. Clara Barton broke through the barriers that so often confined women to the domestic sphere, and her long career of public service touched people all over the world. She was an advocate for the expansion of rights for African Americans and women, a pioneer of public education, the inventor of the first aid kit, and one of the first women to work for the federal government. This talk by a park ranger at Clara Barton National Historic Site in Glen Echo will use photographs from Clara Barton's life and times to describe her service and the struggles she overcame along the way.
