Fannie Walker, aka Emily Sutton, was a local Madam in Memphis.  During the Yellow Fever epidemic in 1873 she opened her home as a hospital and nursed those who fell victim.  In October 1873, she fell victim to Yellow Fever as well.

Mattie Stephenson came from Illinois to Memphis as a nurse during the yellow fever epidemic of 1873. The "Heroine of Memphis" died shortly after she began ministering to the sick and dying.

The Great Fever:  1878 Epidemic - "There were comparatively few cases of yellow fever during the Civil War. Peacetime brought a boom of trade as improved rail service and shipping allowed people and goods -- as well as disease -- to travel easily in the united nation. By 1878, conditions were ripe for a powerful epidemic of yellow fever in the Mississippi Valley."

The Great Fever | American Experience | PBS

In 1900, Major Walter Reed, Chief Surgeon of the U.S. Army, led a medical team to Cuba on a mission to investigate yellow fever. For more than two hundred years the disease had terrorized the United States, killing an estimated 100,000 people in the nineteenth century alone. Shortly after Reed and his team arrived in Havana, they began testing the radical theories of Carlos Finlay, a Cuban doctor who believed that mosquitoes spread yellow fever.

From the 14th to the 20th centuries, ports around the world carried out official quarantines of arriving travelers in hopes of staving off epidemics of plague, yellow fever, and other deadly scourges. The caption to this drawing from an 1858 issue of Harper's Weekly quotes a Dr. Anderson as saying: "While the Angel of Death rides on the fumes of the iron scow, and infected airs are wafted to our shores from the anchorage, we shall have no security against these annual visitations of…

Death and Plague in Art

Sometime in the middle of the 14th century, Europeans became fascinated with the concept of death. Losing over a third of your population to the plague in just a few years will do that. And naturally, this fascination was mirrored in their art. Somtimes death was depicted beautifully, sometimes every gory, disgusting aspect was portrayed. I've gathered a few examples here. Click on any of the images below for a larger view. "Death as a Cutthroat", engraving by Alfred Rethel (1851). Rethel…
