Angel of the Battlefield
By Jody Williams
  

1     Clara Barton was known as the "Angel of the Battlefield." In the 1860's, women were not allowed on the battlefield. Clara Barton changed that. A group of soldiers had lost their supplies. Clara Barton jumped in to help. She tore up old sheets for towels and handkerchiefs. She cooked for the troops. That was the beginning of her duty for her country.
 
2     Clara Barton was born on Christmas day in 1821. She was born in Massachusetts. Her father was a farmer. He was also a soldier. He would tell her stories about being in the army. Clara became interested in the military. She always had a kind heart. When she was 11, she took care of her brother. He had had a bad accident. She learned many lessons taking care of him. Clara used them for the rest of her life.
 
3     When Clara Barton was 15, she became a teacher. She was a teacher for 18 years. She moved to Washington, D.C. Clara heard reports about how the soldiers did not have enough supplies. She put an ad in the newspaper for people to help. The people sent many things. She had to set up a place to hand out the supplies.
