ORGANIZATION FOUNDED ON THIS DAY IN 1881

The LOC.GOV Wise Guide : She Was the 'Angel of the Battlefield'

In Washington, D.C., humanitarians Clara Barton  and Adolphus Solomons
founded the American National
Red Cross, an organization established to
provide humanitarian aid to victims of wars and natural disasters in
congruence with the International Red Cross.

Barton, born in Massachusetts in 1821, worked with the sick and wounded
during the
American Civil War and became known as the “Angel of the
Battlefield” for her tireless dedication. In 1865, President
Abraham
Lincoln
commissioned her to search for lost prisoners of war, and with
the extensive records she had compiled during the war she succeeded
in identifying thousands of the Union dead at the
Andersonville prisoner-
of-war camp.
