The Plagues of Memphis, Part 1

Everything old is new again.

Cholera, diptheria, St. Anthony's fire, dysentery, yellow fever, smallpox, tuberculosis. We're talking about age-old diseases that tormented the citizens of Memphis in the 19th century. We'll discuss palliative care, like leeches, herbs, and other means by which early Memphis settlers cared for themselves.
