This study of local epidemic conditions includes a consideration of the effect of the weather on the epidemic in Fort Oglethorpe. Temperatures and other weather conditions are reported for the period of March 1 through April 13. The authors conclude that “it can not be said with certainty that the conditions of temperature and humidity have had much to do with the epidemic, nor can it be denied that they played an important part in predisposing the troops to attack.” There is a reference to a “War Prison Camp” which “is entirely separate and escaped infection.”
