A jarring intersection between the onset of advanced scientific technology and an era we more often associate with muskets and hardtack.
Woodward served in the U.S. Civil War as medical officer and produced several publications on war-related diseases. In addition he was a microscopist of worldwide reputation and an important pioneer in photo-microscopy. A collection of his photo-micrographs are preserved in the Royal Microscopical Society London.
