In 1859 on this day, 24th of June, Henry Dunant witnessed the Battle of Solferino which would lead to the founding of the Red Cross.

Dunant was shocked and dismayed by the 40,000 soldiers left dead or wounded on the field. He began mobilizing the local people into action to help and start rescue work. Thus in 1863, the Red Cross was finally founded.
