How did the Red Cross start?

Answer

The Red Cross started in 1863, inspired by a Swiss businessman, Henry Dunant. He had been appalled at the suffering of thousands of men, who were left to die due to lack of care after the Battle of Solferino. He proposed the creation of national relief societies, made up of trained volunteers to provide neutral and impartial help to relieve suffering during war.
