Dr. Henry Woodward was many things, chef among them a notorious slave trader. The use of one phase, "friend to the Indian", first written by an English Lord, is often used as a simple sentiment to describe him but creates a false narrative. Dr. Henry Woodward's full history and the history of the Indian slave trade can be easily accessible. It' is hoped that this monument can be amended or that a drawing and more lengthy description of Indian life and slavery will be included at the site.
