Birthday Wishes, December 25

25 Dec

Happy Birthday, Martha Coffin.  Coffin was the sister of Lucretia Mott.  Both women were suffragist and social reformers.  Coffin, like her sister was raised as a Quaker.  However, she was later expelled for her free thinking.  Coffin was happy with her estrangement from organized religion.

Happy Birthday, Clara Barton.  Barton was Civil War nurse and organizer; relief worker; and founder of the American Red Cross.
