The Contagion of Liberty: The Politics of Smallpox in the American Revolution

Sunday, February 11, 2 – 3 pm, virtual

The Contagion of Liberty: The Politics of Smallpox in the American Revolution is a timely and fascinating account of the raucous public demand for smallpox inoculation during the American Revolution and the origin of vaccination in the United States. In The Contagion of Liberty, author Andrew Wehrman describes a revolution within a revolution, where the violent insistence for freedom from disease ultimately helped American colonists achieve independence from Great Britain.

Andrew Wehrman is a historian, writer, and associate professor of history at Central Michigan University. He received his Ph.D. from Northwestern University, and an M.A.T. and B.A. from the University of Arkansas. His research and teaching focuses on Colonial and Revolutionary America and the history of medicine, disease, and public health.
