Clara Barton: Civil War nurse and founder of the American Red Cross

Just got home from under the big tent, the Chautauqua. I mentioned that the nightly performances started Tuesday, and it's been real fun. Tonight was Karen Vuranch's turn.

Karen's a great storyteller and scholar. She reenacted for us Clara Barton, Civil War nurse and founder of the American Red Cross. After Karen's performance, she told us what is was like, to put together a character and story. Need to read a biography about Clara Barton. What a fascinating woman! Karen portrayed the character of Julia Child, two years ago, and it was excellent. She got me interested in Julia too!
