Clara Barton - Patriot Angel

Sunday July 9, 2017
2:00 PM Matinee

Longmont, CO

Let's travel back to the late 1880s. Miss Clara Barton is well known as a public speaker describing the contributions that led to her being dubbed "the Angel of the Battlefield" during the Civil War. She defines her role as filling the gap "between the bullet and the hospital." But she is also ready to describe her activities after the war: First establishing and running an "Office for Missing Soldiers" — creating the first of what we now call a "Missing in Action" list; Later serving under the International Red Cross and eventually founding the American Red Cross — an undertaking that demanded educating the public, lobbying with Congress, and working with the press — all from the disadvantage-point of being a woman in a society that assigned very little power to her gender.

Hear Clara's tribute to those who serve in our armed forces - soldier, veteran, and their families. Find out how she worked her way through government red tape both to care for the wounded on the battlefield and years later to convince the United States government to bring the Red Cross to America. Her fortitude under fire and tenacious dedication to the cause of humanity stand as a role model for all time.
