Assuming the "spotted fever" you ask about refers to the disease that
caused so many deaths in New England in 1812 and 1813, etc., it was
more formally known as "epidemic cerebro-spinal
meningitis". Googling that term will bring up several old medical
journals and some modern ones that discuss the disease.
