A Woman of Valor - Discussion Group Meeting

Most of you know that I am working on a museum project - Clara Barton's Missing Soldiers Office (MSO) - at 437 Seventh Street Northwest in Washington DC.  The project is progressing wonderfully and the preservation/conservation work should be completed sometime this fall.  With that in mind, several friends have begun the process of filling up on available material on Miss Barton, and asked if it weren't possible to start a "Book Social" to discuss said materials and digest different perspectives. 


Everyone is invited to attend the Social meetings beginning in the first or second week of October.  I may hold an additional meeting on a weekend.  At the initial meeting we will discuss the first chapter of Stephen C. Oates work A Woman of Valor: Clara Barton and the Civil War.  It is required reading for anyone conducting tours of the MSO.  It is available in our book/gift shop at all three locations.  All interested should email me at clarabarton@civilwarmed.org and include when/where is the best time and place to meet for their schedule.  All those who RSVP will receive an email invitation with a proposed date and time. 

I hope to see you there!
