In 1900, Major Walter Reed, Chief Surgeon of the U.S. Army, led a team to Cuba to investigate yellow fever, the disease that had killed an estimated 100,000 people in the US in the 19th century alone. Reed and his team tested the radical theories of Carlos Finlay, a doctor who believed that mosquitoes spread the disease. This program documents the heroic efforts of Reed's team, some of whom put their own lives at risk to verify Finlay's theory.

Comments about PBS American Experience: The Great Fever DVD:

I've been using this video since it first aired to help teach my 7th grade science students how the scientific method works. I show it after they've had a chance to learn the experimental model and practice it themselves. They love the movie! Gore (mild), science, and history in a movie at school! What could be better?
