Today, we know TB is an airborne infectious disease, spread when a person with TB disease coughs, speaks, or sings.

However, in the early 1800s, there were "vampire panics" throughout New England. When a TB outbreak occurred in a town, it was suspected that the first family member to die of TB came back as a vampire to infect the rest of the family.
