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!
A hidden gem for Civil War buffs and Red Cross fans! If you are interested in the Civil War, urban architecture, or the Red Cross, consider stopping in!
I recommend a visit to this museum for any nurse, Civil War lover, or history buff!
To be completely honest, I’m typically not that into history … but this story, and how it was described and presented, I was able to get an image in my head of everything! Superb!
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.
Outstanding! To actually stand in this office and feel Barton’s presence is worth a special trip!
