    The Politics of Yellow Fever in Alexander Hamilton’s America
     

    The Politics of Yellow Fever will consider how party politics shaped the response to the 1793 yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia. The exhibition focuses on Alexander Hamilton’s disagreement with Dr. Benjamin Rush to tell the story of how Philadelphia’s sick, anxious residents responded to yellow fever using an uneasy blend of science and politics.
