BIO-TERRORISM
  BIOLOGIC WARFARE

Could it not be contrived to send the Small Pox among those disaffected tribes of Indians?

From a letter by Sir Jeffrey Amherst (British commander-in-chief, American Colonies, 1763) about the uprising among the Pontiac. Smallpox-infested blankets were distributed to the Shawnee and Delaware peoples.

Above 700 Negroes are come down the River with Smallpox. I shall distribute them about the rebel plantations.


From a letter by British General Alexander Leslie, July 13, 1781.
