I recommend a visit to this museum for any nurse, Civil War lover, or history buff!

For anyone interested in American history, or simply the story of an amazing human being, this place is a must-see when you are in DC.
I was lucky enough to visit this bit of hidden history while in town for an American Red Cross meeting. Even those of us familiar with Clara Barton’s story learned something. Well worth a visit!
