While serving in the Civil War seeing a cannon ball coming his way, jerked his foot back, but for lack of time to clear, lost the great toe, as it was severed from his right foot. Another time a bullet lodged in the right side of his abdomen, he carried to his grave. The need and his talent, a gift of God,he began helping to relieve suffering of both the Union and Rebel armies.He studied and trained. On leaving the service he was granted a doctor certificate and remained a student the remainder of his many years.Dr. G.W. became ill himself with appendicitis. The two other doctors in Branson, John and Guy B. Mitchell, suggested surgery but he refused, at his age, knowing the consequences as he was reminded by the other doctors.
