This is bundle of 2 power point presentations on Famous Nurses of the American Civil War – Clara Barton & Phoebe Yates Pember. The total number of slides is 30 and each one is editable, so you can modify those to meet your individual needs.
Power point presentation #1 is entitled American Civil War - Key Leaders - Union - Clara Barton and contains 14 slides.
Clarissa Harlowe "Clara" Barton was a prominent nurse in the American Civil War who later founded the American Red Cross.
In addition to being a hospital nurse, she worked as a teacher, patent clerk, and humanitarian. At a time when relatively few women worked outside the home, Barton built a career helping others. She was never married, as she knew the restrictions of a married woman at the time but had a relationship with John Elwell.

Power point presentation #2 is entitled American Civil War - Key Leaders - Confederate - Phoebe Yates Levy Pember and contains 16 slides.
Phoebe Yates Levy Pember is one of the Confederacy’s most celebrated nurses. She joined the Confederate nursing campaign in December 1862 and served as chief matron of the 2nd Division of the Chimborazo Hospital on the outskirts of Richmond, the largest hospital in the Confederacy. She oversaw nursing operations and attended to the housekeeping, dietary needs, and comfort of over 15,000 men!
In addition to her tireless commitment to patient care, she is most famous for waging a one-woman crusade against alcohol abuse at Chimborazo Hospital. Much of the time this meant blocking efforts by the staff to pilfer supplies, especially whiskey, placed under her control and protected by a gun she kept hidden nearby.
The account of her experiences at Chimborazo are recorded in the book, “A Southern Woman’s Story: Life in Confederate Richmond” in 1879.
