Women of History

My blog entry is not only late but I wanted to write something very different this time.

Among friends was a long and enthusiastic discussion regarding history, the influences, effects and the people in it. So I thought I would bring a little attention to a few women who had a huge impact on our history and those who made important accomplishments of their own. If their known that’s amazing. If they’re not, they ought to be.

I’ll list the names followed by a link to a page describing them.

Clara Barton. Nurse and founder of the American Red Cross   https://www.redcross.org/about-us/who-we-are/history/clara-barton.html

Sally Louisa Tompkins. Humanitarian, nurse, philanthropist and the first woman to have been formally inducted into an army in American history.         https://ehistory.osu.edu/biographies/sally-louisa-tompkins

Rose O’Neal Greenhow. Socialite and renowned Spy for the Civil War Confederate army.   https://www.battlefields.org/learn/biographies/rose-oneal-greenhow

Mary Bowser. Slave turned Union Spy during Civil War.     https://encyclopediavirginia.org/entries/bowser-mary-richards-fl-1846-1867/

Rebecca Lee Crumpler. First African American woman physician in the United States.   https://www.pbs.org/newshour/amp/health/celebrating-rebecca-lee-crumpler-first-african-american-physician

Dorothea Dix. Civil War nurse who transformed the way we treat the physically and mentally ill.   https://www.womenshistory.org/education-resources/biographies/dorothea-dix

Thought that would be enough for now. But just a small handful of remarkable women who had a big impact on our history and there’s hardly anyone who knows about them. Let’s change that. Thank you ladies.
