Clara then moved to Washington D.C. to work as a clerk in the U.S. Paton Office in the 1850’s. Barton had an anti-slavery opinion and women who had opinions back then were already scorned, so Clara was soon let go from her job for being too controversial. Clara then went back to her home located in New England to continue her views that had gotten her fired in Washington D.C. When 1861 rolled around, she moved back to Washington D.C. The American Civil War has just broken out and Barton was one of the first volunteers lined up at the infirmary to help the wounded soldiers.

ABSTRACT Florence Nightingale was born into a wealthy family; Nightingale was determined to enter nursing despite its low status at this time. Florence Nightingale was truly inspirational and changed the face of nursing from a mostly untrained profession to a highly skilled and well respected medical profession with very important responsibilities. She showed that trained nurses and good hygiene help sick people get better. She opened the first professional nursing school in history. It was because of the influence of Florence Nightingale that nursing as a profession became what it is today.
In honor of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, a tradition/pledge that states the ethics and principles of the nursing profession is said at pinning ceremonies by nurses. Florence Nightingale has had a the most powerful influence on modern nursing through her implementation of sanitary health practices in hospitals starting in the 1850s. She also helped change the perspective of nursing as a lower/menial job. During her lifetime, she implemented practices that were not used before that would help patients from contracting diseases from wounds. She considered these never-before-implemented hygienic practices as practices that should have already been considered as common sense.

I love how you went straight to the origin of nursing and covered Florence Nightingale and her role in the Crimean War in the 1950s. Under Florence’s leadership, she and the 38 nurses brought cleanliness, sanitation, nutritious food and comfort to the patients. I couldn’t agree more of the impact that Nightingale has had on the nursing industry and how it has paved the way for how we process certain things in the hospital environment. For example, a major contribution was the importance of implementing sanitation within the hospitals. “Nightingale 's accomplishments during the disastrous years the British army experienced in the Crimea were largely the result of her concern with sanitation and its relation to mortality” (Fee, Elizabeth).
"Ghost" emphasis her child and how he is gone and it hasn 't hit her yet. Death in war is such a recurring scene in the poems, like "war photographer", which is described to be in war and also describes the death of men, women and children in war, "spools of suffering set out in ordered rows", ordered rows means the graves of humans that lost their lives in war, also "blood stained into foreign dust" which is a metaphor to describe the impact this war and all the other wars affect these countries and their people. "Mother in a refugee camp" also links to death in war, which affected her personally by the death of her son, because of their presence in a refugee camp; we must assume that they were displaced and that what might have caused the death of her only

The Civil War opened up the field of nursing to women, breaking down yet another barrier of the strict gender roles placed on women during the nineteenth century. Women from both the North and the South joined the Civil War as both nurses and “matrons”. The comparison of the way Faust presents Northern and Southern women in the book Mothers of Inventions, lends insight on the similarities and differences between Union and Confederate nurses. According to Faust, Florence Nightingale influenced both Northern and Southern women decision to join nursing during the Civil War (pg 92). Florence Nightingale led a team of nurses, which improved the unsanitary conditions at a British military hospital, during the Crimean War.
