Who founded the American Red Cross?

  • Florence Nightingale
  • Clara Barton correct

    Clara Barton was nothing short of hardcore. She became a teacher at a time when women in teaching were greatly frowned upon. She was one of the first women to gain employment in the federal government. At age 60, when the rest of us are thinking retirement and 11 a.m. naps, Barton founded the American Red Cross and led it for the next twenty-three years. And you thought Florida sounded like a good idea. Source: The American Red Cross
