The Civil War Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office
CSPAN November 27, 2019 5:34am-6:34am EST
Jake Wynn is the director of interpretation at the Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office Museum in Washington, DC. He talked about the life of Clara Barton, whose work as a field nurse during the Civil War earned her the nickname "Angel of the Battlefield." Mr. Wynn also discussed Barton's inspiration for creating the Missing Soldiers Office as a way to help families locate their loved ones who had gone missing in service during the war. This talk was part of a day-long seminar co-hosted by Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, and Appomattox Court House National Historical Park.
