American Experience: Great Fever
At the close of the Spanish-American war, yellow fever was killing more soldiers in tropical climes than Spanish bullets did for the entire war. Learn about the famous expedition of Major Walter Reed, chief surgeon of the U.S. Army, who went down with a team to investigate a radical new theory—that mosquitos spread the disease and that its contraction could be prevented. 2006/color/60 min/PG/fullscreen.
