First war nurse and inspiration for the Red Cross

Florence Nightingale (12 May 1820 – 13 August 1910) was an English social reformer, statistician and the founder of modern nursing. Nightingale a manager and trainer of nurses during the Crimean War, cared for wounded soldiers at Constantinople. She gave nursing a favorable reputation and became an icon of Victorian culture, especially in the persona of "The Lady with the Lamp" making nightly rounds of wounded soldiers. Her prodigious writings spread medical knowledge which included a broad understanding of religion and mysticism.
