History Conversations REWIND
“Clara Barton at Antietam”
with Susan Rosenvold

Premieres Monday, September 13 @ 10:00 a.m.

In commemoration of the 159th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam, hear the story of someone who experienced it firsthand: Clara Barton.

Discover Clara Barton’s first foray on the field of battle, from the meeting that gained her permission to take supplies to and travel with the Army through Maryland, to her experiences at the Battle of Antietam and her return to Washington, D.C. Despite the horrors and challenges she faced, it solidified her determination to become a dedicated humanitarian and led to the establishment of the American Red Cross.

This is not a live talk and there is no registration link. The video will be posted here on our website at 10:00 a.m. Monday, September 13 and will be available through Sunday, September 19.
