“I live the old days all over again, every hour is as plain in my mental view as the best drawn picture before my eyes. The spot dearest to me there, the most like home, is the old house where my youth was passed…I was born on Christmas Day,…it was a rather newly built house where I commenced my earthly pilgrimage.”  ~ Clara Barton
