Clara Barton Nurse's Uniform Costume or Cabin Dresses

Please Place Your order at least 4 - 6 weeks in advance of your planned function.

Clarissa Harlowe Barton (December 25, 1821April 12, 1912) was a pioneer American teacher, nurse, and humanitarian. She has been described as having had a "strong and independent spirit" as in one story, the head nurse wanted all the nurses to wear black or brown so they wouldn't flirt with the soldiers. It is said that Clara Barton didn't want to be plain and insisted on wearing dark green. Clara Barton is best remembered for organizing the American Red Cross in 1881.

It is this story above that prompted the color of fabric for my Clara Barton Costume.
