After the American Revolution, basic public health services evolved, and with that the eventually establishment of the Red Cross in America. At the same time, Florence Nightingale was being considered the origin of professional nursing in Europe, as she studied for 3 months at Kaisenworth, Germany and then began to implement her learning throughout war ravaged Europe during the Crimean War. She was known to have established public health nursing. “The health of the unity is the health of the community. Unless you have the health of the unity, there is no community health.

In thirty-six days there were nearly twenty-six thousand US casualties, almost seven thousand American troops were KIA (Hama, Erksine and Williams 98). 22,000 Japanese troops were sent to battle, with a result of only five hundred survivors. The Battle of Iwo Jima and World War II in general changed many people’s lives. Many were killed, many loved ones had died and many were mentally moved. The Flag Raising at Iwo Jima taken by Joe Rosenthal helped those people who lost and helped Americans get through this war.
This paper provides a critical analysis of primary sources, such as publications, diaries and letters by the battlefield nurses and secondary sources addressing the involvement of women nurses (battlefield angels) in the American civil war. Battlefield Nurses during the Civil War Volunteer nurses were invaluably resourceful during the civil war by providing aid and comfort to wounded as well as sick soldiers. At the beginning of the national struggle, the nursing profession was dominated by men due to the consideration that women were too frail to handle the severities of administering to the wounded and sick.

Seacole was originally from the West Indies and voyaged to the Crimean war because she wanted to help nurse the wounded soldiers .This shows that Seacole was in Crimea to actually help the soldiers and aid the medical assistance, I think that this shows the true qualities of the ‘Angel of Mercy’. In comparison, source V speaks of how Florence Nightingale revolutionised the way in hospitals in the Crimea were run. This could be seen from the quotation ‘formidable gifts for organisation’. In contrast, source 2C describes the energy in which Nightingale preformed every task and compares her against the grit and determination of the soldiers. An example of this is ‘battled as valiantly as any soldier in the field to improve conditions’.

Overview of the American Red Cross: Clara Barton, born in 1821, had been a schoolteacher, a clerk in the U.S. Patent Office, and had earned the nickname "Angel of the Battlefield" during the Civil War before she founded the American Red Cross in 1881. Barton's experiences of collecting and distributing supplies to soldiers during the Civil War, as well as working as a nurse on battlefields, made her a champion for the rights of wounded soldiers. After the Civil War, Barton aggressively lobbied for the establishment of an American version of the International Red Cross (which had been founded in Switzerland in 1863) and for the United States to sign the Geneva Convention. She succeeded with both -- the American Red Cross was founded in 1881
There, officials of the International Red Cross, organized in 1864, urged her to seek United States agreement to the Geneva Convention recognizing the work of the Red Cross; the powerful U.S. Sanitary Commission had been unable to obtain it. But before Barton could turn to the task, the Franco-Prussian War began. She offered her services to the Grand Duchess of Baden in administering military hospitals. Her most original idea (developed further in later situations) was to put needy Strasbourg women to work sewing garments for pay. Later, with the French defeated and Paris held by the Commune, she entered the starving city to distribute food and clothing.
Do you agree with the view that it was largely as a result of the work of Florence Nightingale that medical care for British soldiers improved during the Crimean War? Explain your answer, using sources 4, 5 and 6 and your own knowledge. (40) Florence Nightingale is renowned for her medical work during the Crimean War. All three sources relate to her hard work and show that she had a significant impact on the care of British soldiers. There is no doubt that she contributed to the medical car, but it has been suggested that she did not have the largest impact on medical care.
