OriginEdit

Blackburn was a physician around the time of the Civil War. He was responsible for the first successful yellow fever quarantines. He was also a staunch supporter of the Confederate army, often aiding Confederate blockade running operations. After the war he was implicated in a plot to distribute linens that were owned by yellow fever sufferers into the northern states during the war. There was a lot of evidence against him, but most of it was circumstantial. He was acquitted in a Toronto court, but there was still great animosity towards him in the states. True or not, the effort would have proven futile. It was later discovered that yellow fever is spread by mosquitoes.

EffectsEdit

When the linens come in contact with another person, he/she will contract yellow fever. Those that sing a Dixie song, or some other Southern ditty, will be cured.

CollectionEdit

Collected by Warehouse 12 agents stationed in America after a mysterious outbreak of yellow fever broke out in town in Kentucky. Only one man seemed to be immune, a doctor with the habit of humming while he tended to his patients. Can be cured by singing a Dixie song.
