Told in her own words, this play focuses on the early years of the fascinating life of Clara Barton. Beginning with her childhood in New England, the play goes on to tell of her fight to establish the first public school in New Jersey, of her efforts to reform the corrupt United States Patent Office, and eventually of her courageous work as “the Angel of the Battlefield” bringing medical care to the wounded soldiers at the front lines of the Civil War.
