Video duration: 17:31
Tucked into the pages of an antique book, our contributor has what he thinks may be a letter written by Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross. Dated July 1866, the letter reports the death of a man named Israel Brown and has an envelope addressed to J. Blair Welch. Did Clara Barton actually write this letter? If so, why was she writing about these men?
