Clara Barton Historic Marker


This historic marker at Ox Road and Fairfax Station Road commemorates the nursing work of Clara Barton. The marker reads, "Clara H. Barton, Founder of the American Red Cross. Here at Fairfax Station in early Sept. 1862, after the Second Battle of Manassas and the action near Chantilly, Clara Barton ministered to the suffering. By her human and tireless efforts this angel of the battlefield helped move over 3000 wounded soldiers to safety. (Erected by the Fairfax County Chapter, American National Red Cross, 1961)"
