The American Red Cross was founded May 21, 1881. Since then it has been known by several names including: ARC, American Association of the Red Cross (1881 - 1892) and American National Red Cross (1893 - 1978).

The Red Cross, as it is commonly known, operates is a unique organization in the United States being the only congressional mandated organization to provide aid to victims of disaster and is responsible for fulfilling the mandates of the Geneva Convention within the United States

Clara Barton, is the recognized founder of the American Red Cross, prior to that she had been a schoolteacher and a clerk in the U.S. Patent Office. She volunteered as a nurse to help the wounded during the American Civil War. So appreciative were the soldiers that they nicknamed her the "Angel of the Battlefield.”

Both World Wars exponentially expanded the American Red Cross by significantly increasing Red Cross chapters, volunteers, and funds. The American Red Cross sent thousands of nurses overseas, helped organize the home front, established veterans hospitals, delivered care packages, organized ambulances, and even trained dogs to search for wounded. The American Red Cross has continued to be an important organization, offering aid to millions affected by wars and disasters.

The presentation covers the following:
