Florence Nightingale, born in 1820, was well educated in literature, music, drawing and the domestic arts. At a young age she heard a different calling for her life's purpose. It was to follow a life of nursing, a vocation not respected at the time as hospitals were usually filthy, dark, unsanitary places. Then during the Crimean War she became famous for her selfless caring and tireless service, revolutionizing British military medical care, greatly improving sanitation, nutrition and dramatically lowering mortality rates. She became known by the British soldiers as the lady with the lamp. Join the Raiders as they visit this remarkable woman, the first ever to receive the British Order of Merit.
