Clara Barton was born in Massachusetts on Christmas Day, 1821. At a young age, Barton showed an intellectual side. Despite the social norms of educating a woman, her parents were proud of their daughter. She taught for ten years, demanding to be paid the same as a man. Barton raised money for Union soldiers, as well as filling a covered wagon with supplies and riding it to the battlefronts on her own. Despite the negative reactions by men, Barton continued to be a dutiful nurse to injured men. She even set out to find missing men by submitting their names to news papers and hanging lists in public places. Barton found 22,000 missing men during her search.
