Amazing Mothers Throughout History
By | May 9, 2019
The inspiration for Mother’s Day came from Ann Reeves, from West Virginia, who not only cared for wounded soldiers during the Civil War but also helped to organize clubs that taught mothers how to take care of their children in order to prevent infant deaths. Her daughter, Anna Jarvis was so moved by her mother’s dedication that she wanted to see mothers everywhere recognized for the sacrifices they make. As a tribute to her mother’s death, she pushed for and became the founder of Mother’s Day.
Since then, Mother’s Day has become a day to celebrate mothers everywhere from every walk of life and remember mothers from different eras. Mothers throughout history have made their mark on future generations. And what would a loving mother do for her child? What lengths will they go to in order to protect them?
