The mom who inspired Mother’s Day

Ann Jarvis cared for wounded soldiers on both sides during the Civil War, which led to the formation of a Mother's Friendship Day. Were it not for her daughter, Anna, the celebration may have died with her and Mother's Day would not have become a national holiday.
