After the Civil War, Barton traveled around the country giving lectures. During this time, she met Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. In 1897, Barton moved to her home in Glen Echo, Maryland, which served as the first Red Cross Headquarters. Her home in Glen Echo was the first national historic site recognized for the accomplishments of a woman.
