Claudius Galen,
Greek Physician, Giclee Print

b. c. 129 AD; Pergamon, Greece
d. c. 200 AD; Rome

Ancient Greek physician Galen dominated Western medicine for more than a thousand years. He was particularly noted for his anatomy knowledge - though the Romans forbade dissection of human corpses, the wounds of the gladiators sufficed in giving the opportunity to explore how the body was put together - Galen said wounds “were the windows into the body.”

Galen quote ~
• “Those who are enslaved to their sects are not merely devoid of all sound knowledge, but they will not even stop to learn!”

Richard Gatling, who graduated from Ohio Medical School in 1850, noted that most Civil War casualties were due to disease. He reasoned that an automatic gun which multiplied the killing power of one soldier would reduce the number to soldiers needed to go to war, and reduce the number of dead.
