History Detectives -The Barton Letter - recommended viewing



History Detectives is one of my favorite television shows.
In this week's episode, one story really moved me - entitled "The Barton Letter". Clara Barton was a true heroine who made valiant efforts to help people discover the fate of missing soldiers in the Civil War as well as to get soldiers basic supplies they were lacking like socks and food. She later went on to found the American chapter of The Red Cross. Despite her huge efforts, 60% of the war dead in the Civil War were never identified and their families and friends never learned their fates. "The Barton Letter" is about one man's efforts to enlist the aid of Clara Barton in finding out what happened to his missing neighbor. A very sad chapter in American history.
