Product Description
Clara Barton's Mission to Help Others lesson allows students to analyze the first day cover (an envelope containing a commemorative stamp honoring Clara Barton, a postmark cancelled from her birthplace in Oxford, Massachusetts and artwork depicting her work) and then discover her mission to help others by reading two primary sources. The first is a letter written to her cousin Vira the night before the 1862 Civil War battle at Fredericksburg, and the second is an excerpt from her autobiography describing her Red Cross work in Texas after the 1900 Galveston Hurricane. How did her work as a nurse during the Civil War inspire her to start the American Red Cross? How has the American Red Cross continued now to help citizens and soldiers in time of need? Does the American Red Cross have a presence in your town? How can students help it to help others?
