Clara Barton

I don’t know how long it has been since my ear has been free from the roll of a drum. It is the music I sleep by, and I love it…. I shall remain here while anyone remains, and do whatever comes to my hand. I may be compelled to face danger, but never fear it, and while our soldiers can stand and fight, I can stand and feed and nurse them.
