Clara Barton Monument
A surgeon at Antietam, Dr. James Dunn, stated that the true heroine of the age and an angle of the battle field was Clara Barton. Clara Barton had spent over a year collecting medical supplies that she knew the army so desperately needed. She hired teamsters to drive a wagon filled with medical supplies right into the battle. In the battle field she assisted surgeons, soothed soldiers’ wounds, brought water, prepared food, and was almost killed as a bullet went through her blouse sleeve entering an already wounded soldier. Lack of sleep and exhaustion brought on a case of typhoid fever requiring Clara Barton to return to Washington DC. Once she recovered she returned to the battlefields of the Civil War where she worked tirelessly with wounded soldiers.
