Anna Jarvis was a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War. She created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and wanted to set aside a day to honor all mothers because she believed a mother is “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”.
