Defeat was looming for the South--as the Civil War continued, paths to possible victory were fast disappearing. Dr. Luke Pryor Blackburn, a Confederate physician and expert in infectious diseases, had an idea that might turn the tide: he would risk his own life and career to bring a yellow fever epidemic to the North. To carry out his mission, he would need some accomplices. Tracing the plans and movements of the conspirators, this thoroughly researched history describes in detail the yellow fever plot of 1864-1865.

There’s a great display regarding this plot in Bermuda in Hamilton if you ever make it that way. Bermuda traded widely with Southern Blockade Runners and also experienced an epidemic. If only Blackburn had brought back some of those mosquitos his plot might have worked!
