I feel compelled to explain my absence. Like Clara sometimes suffered from illness, depression, etc., I have been off taking care of other business for a while. I have also left the National Museum of Civil War Medicine. A new, thoughtful post will be coming soon.
Meanwhile, please keep an eye out for the opening of the Missing Soldiers Office, or take a ride to Glen Echo and visit Clara's old home from Red Cross and later, the Clara Barton National Historic Site. Anyone near Worcester, Massachusetts can visit Clara's birthplace in North Oxford.
