Documentary Details Philly’s 18th-Century Yellow Fever Epidemic

Now available to be pre-ordered

The second episode of Sam Katz’s film series on the history of Philadelphia is now available to be pre-ordered. The episode details the city’s yellow fever crisis at the end of the 18th century that wiped out 10 percent of Philly’s population. 6 ABC aired the first episode, which chronicled Philadelphia’s rapid growth following the Civil War, earlier this year. The Scoop’s DeLorean is in the shop so this is as close as he’s going to get to Philadelphia circa 1793. [Kickstarter]
