Lecture - Yellow Fever-- Wilmington, 1862

Monday, Nov 19, 2012 7:30p to 9:00p
Federal Point History Center Carolina Beach, NC

Author and local historian Jack Fryar will join us to talk about the Yellow Fever epidemic that hit Wilmington in 1862. Did the blockade runner Kate bring the disease? How did the city cope? A Confederate soldier described the scene in a letter to his mother: “The reported appearance of this deadly contagion… created a tremendous panic in the city. The citizens were leaving by scores and hundreds in every manner of conveyance that could be obtained.”
