FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE (1820 1910) was a famed British Nurse, social reformer, and statistician. She is best known for her role in the Crimean War where she was essential to caring for many of the wounded soldiers.
During the war Nightingale would visit the wounded at night caring with her a lamp she thus gained the nickname "The Lady with the Lamp". Throughout her life Nightingale published many works that helped pave the way for modern nursing today. She also cemented herself as one of the most memorable figures of the Victorian era. Florence was also a founding member of the British Red Cross and to this day International Nurses day is celebrated on her birthday, in her honor.
