Thanks, EC:) Smiling.
Never knew the yellow fever part.
It was certainly a huge chunk of the populace wasn't it, Pat?
Happy Independence Day to you, dear Sandra. Having been to Philadelphia in the past, I knew it was the capital. I DID NOT know about the yellow fever. Great trivia question.
I was on the learning curve on that one too, dear Elizabeth.Happy Independence Day to you:)
Happy 4th to you.
Thank you, Jamie. And to you.
My goodness, I did not know about the yellow fever! This would be a great Jeopardy question. Hope you and your family are enjoying the Independence Day and staying cool. I've been fighting a cold, and plan to relax a little today. No cooking out for me, but i sure hope someone drops off a cheeseburger.(lol) Hugs, RO
Sorry to hear you are fighting a cold.Hope someone drops off a cheeseburger. I've got a veggie burger I could offer you. Heh.Happy 4th, Rockin Ro.
I actually did know about Philly! But not the yellow fever! Happy Fourth!
One out of two. Not bad, Jeanie:)Happy 4th.
Happy 4th of July! I did know that Philadelphia was the capital but didn’t know about yellow fever claiming so many lives...interesting.
I was on the learning curve of that too, Birgit.Hope you're enjoying your vacay.
Oh my...nope, here in the South, they don't teach such stuff about Northerners...yankees...HahahaBut no, didn't know. Sounds like the Spanish Flu of 1918...terrible.Happy Independence Day sweet lady!hughugs
Ha!Happy 4th., Donna;)Hugs received and returned.
I knew that Yellow Fever was very bad then, but I was unaware of how many it killed so I looked it up. The 1793 Yellow Fever epidemic in Philadelphia killed approximately 5,000 people in four months.Love,Janie
Good for you for researching, Janie. Devastating wasn't it?
I knew that, and that NYC was also a temp capital for awhile.
You're the history trivia man:)
Your post prompted me to check this out. Wow. Philadelphia. Got hit hard. Bloodletting in 1790?
It did get hit hard for sure.
I hope you had a great 4th of July Sandra! That is sad about Philadelphia! Thanks for the history! Big Hugs!
