THE 1873 DEATH ROLL. Eli
J as:
Those Who Died of Yellow Fever DM
During the Great Epidemic. Joe
Chef
Colc
As a matter of interest THE PROGRESS
below gives a list of those who died of
yellow fever in Shreveport during the
great epidemic of 1 73. This was taken Mai
from the Shreveport Times of November
15th, 1873, and was gathered from the
books of the Howard -Association and RP
Sexton. Only a few copies of this paper M
or issue are extant and are highly prized B
as a sacred momento. HE
x. This list comprises the roll to November C F
1 th, while the last death reported oc
curred on November 18th, showing that
the great scourge was practically stamped J
 out by that date. Jen
Compare this terrible mortality with Ed'
that of Ocean Springs, New Orleans and Mr
other places of this year, said to contain Dr
yellow fever, and ask yourselves the Mr
question: Why all this alarm; why this Col
Sstagnation in buainess by quarantine ?
The first death occurred on August 2)th. M
In one month from that date 289 had 0
succumbed to the disease. The greatest G]
number of deaths on any one day occurred Jol
on September 15th, when 33 answered the Mr
last summons- This was just twenty-four Ge
days after the first death occurred.
