This was a valuable source, although it really didn’t surprise me about the

accessed 11 Nov. 2009.
I used this source for the prominent people afflicted with Smallpox. I found it quite
interesting that George Washington had gotten Smallpox when he was nineteen,
and that the British had planned to lead Washington’s troops into a town infested
with Smallpox. Quite frankly, I never knew the British would play so dirty.

Books, 2009.

eradication of the Smallpox disease. I definitely added most of their information into

In some ways this source was helpful, but it rarely gave me a lot of new information.
In another sense, it did get a bit more into the fears relating 9/11/01 and
bioterrorism, which helped me add a bit more information into my bioterrorism
section.
