Feb 27 2019 Clara Bartons Civil War

Apart from those who mix her up with Britain's Florence Nightingale, Clara Barton has to be the most recognized name in the history of American military nursing. Interested in the Civil War or not, everyone has at least heard of her. Attempting to separate truth from legend, Donald Pfanz's Clara Barton's Civil War: Between Bullet and Hospital represents a fresh reappraisal of her wartime service. Barton "served in at least four Union armies, providing food and assistance to wounded soldiers on battlefields stretching from Maryland to South Carolina. Thousands of soldiers benefited from her actions, and she is unquestionably an American heroine." Like most individuals who survive and thrive in the national consciousness long after their passing, Barton had great PR, much of it created by herself.  

Donald C. Pfanz gained his interest in military history early in life. As a boy, he grew up on the Gettysburg Battlefield, where his father, Harry W. Pfanz, worked as a National Park Service (NPS) historian. After graduating from the College of William and Mary in 1980 with a B.A. in History, Don followed his father into the NPS. In the course his 32-year career, Don worked at Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania County National Military Park (1981-85); the City Point Unit of Petersburg National Battlefield (1985-88); and Fort Sumter National Monument in Charleston, South Carolina (1988-1991). He returned to Fredericksburg as staff historian in 1991 and retired from the NPS in 2013.
