Clara Barton signs an autograph quotation while in Washington D. C.
Autograph Quotation Signed: "Clara Barton/Washington D.C.", 4½x2¼ lined card. In full: "Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,/Lest we forget -- lest we forget." New England schoolteacher Clara Barton (1821-1912) began her charitable work during the American Civil War, organizing a means of distributing medical supplies to doctors and field hospitals and relief supplies to soldiers and civilians. While visiting Europe (1869-1870), she utilized her organizational abilities to help victims of the Franco-Prussian War. During that time, Barton became involved with the International Red Cross, and she returned home determined to establish a similar organization in the U.S. Her subsequent founding of the American branch in 1881 encouraged the U.S. to sign the 1882 Geneva Treaty that ensured the treatment of the wounded during battle and the return of the dead. From 1882 to 1904, Barton served as President of the American Red Cross, often personally taking on relief cases until she was in her 80s. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 18¼x22.
