In March 1886, just three months before writing this letter. In the summer of 1886, she attended the National Encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) in San Francisco, California, which is likely the reason for the absence from her work that she mentions in this letter. Her subsequent founding of the American branch of the Red Cross in 1881 encouraged the U. To sign the 1882 Geneva Treaty that ensured the treatment of the wounded during battle and the return of the dead. From 1882 to 1904, Barton served as President of the American Red Cross, often personally taking on relief cases until she was in her 80s. In September 1886, six months after writing this letter, Barton traveled to the scene of an earthquake in Charleston, South Carolina. Light show through of writing.
