Jake Wynn is the director of interpretation at the Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office Museum in Washington, D.C. He talked about the life of Clara Barton, whose work as a field nurse during the Civil War earned her the nickname “Angel of the Battlefield.” Mr. Wynn also discussed Barton’s inspiration for creating the Missing Soldiers Office as a way to help families locate their loved ones who had gone missing in service during the war. This talk was part of a day-long seminar co-hosted by Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, and Appomattox Court House National Historical Park. close
