Early Years Clara Barton was born on December 25,1821 in North Oxford, Massachusetts. She had two brothers, David and Stephen, and two sisters, Sally and Dorothy, but Barton was the youngest. Barton father named Stephan, which people name his “Captain Stephan” a respected farmer, horse breeder and pollution; her mother name was Sarah Barton.

The time her oldest brother David thought her how to ride anything on four legs, how to balance, and how to take care of nurse animals, she choose him as her favorite brother. When Clara was eleven, her favorite brother, David, fell from the roof of a barn while he was trying to fix it. He was not expected to live. Then, little Clara stepped up and offered to help. She stayed by David's side for three years, and the result was that he got well. Her hobbies were to take care of all her little animal friends and to learn about history, this is when her nursing career started.

Our thoughts of Clara Barton Although Clara Barton work hard and was fatigue, she was notice as a notable woman that kept making many changes in her career. However, we think she is one of the best notable women that we have ever known because she has change many people life by helping them with her teaching and her nursing career. We also believe that she is someone that can be admire at a early age she became a teacher; being a teacher was hard for her because she was a young girl. Since she was in a young age, she had worked non-stop in her career. Another reason Barton should be admire for her work is because she founded her own two school, even though she had to travel a million miles away from her hometown, she manage to give her students an education. Therefore, this is why we admire Clara Barton work. I may be compelled to face danger, but never fear it, and while our soldiers can stand and fight, I can stand and feed and nurse them - Clara Barton
