A Story of the Red Cross

by Clara Barton

Since the foundation of the Red Cross in America, many direful calamities have afflicted the country.

In a volume of this size it must of necessity be but a brief outline, sufficient, however, to convey a clear impression of what the Red Cross really means to every individual in this great country of ours.
