Although I don't know a lot about it I have always been fascinated by Dr. Luke Blackburn and the plan to spread yellow fever in the North by distributing clothing of deceased yellow fever victims who had passed away in Bermuda. A target in the plan was none other than Abraham Lincoln. A gift of dress shirts worn by yellow fever victims was to be delivered as a gift to the White House. Although they were not delivered and would not have worked, I would think this has to be viewed as an assassination attempt by the Confederate Secret Service. I do wonder how Lincoln would have reacted if these shirts had been delivered, and he found himself the recipient of (previously used) dress shirts given to him as a gift. Would he have worn them?
