Clara Barton

Clara Barton is on the honor roll of notable women because of her effort which caused her to gain national acclaim as ''the angel of the battlefield.'' She needs the recognition because she helped many people as a nurse. She started to assemble supplies to Union soliders and she was always turning up with important things for injured people, and she was the founder of the American Red Cross. I believe that she deserves this honor for becoming a very famous and important figure in our country. Clara Barton began to assemble supplies to the Union soliders in the Civil War who were wounded. She was a remarkable person who dedicated her life and energies to help others in time of need. Clara Barton would ''break the shackles and go into the fields,'' knowing that nurses were urgently needed. She would also be turning up with important supplies such as, food and medical things for the soliders. Clara Barton was the founder of the American Red Cross which is a big part of our country today in helping ill people. She worked hard to find soliders after the Civil War and then went to Europe for a rest, but instead she impressed the International Red Cross and came back to the United States to convince the government for establishing the American Red Cross. She served the organization for many years as its president until her death. Becoming a very important person in our country is hard work and Clara Barton used all her strength and energy to help injured people with assembling supplies and always turning up with some for soliders in the Civil War. She was also the founder of the American Red Cross which makes her a notable woman because today, our Red Cross helps thousands of people to get cured and get healthy again. It is a great idea for Clara Barton to have a recognition as a notable woman in a honor roll for all the effort she's given.
