Smallpox and Natives

Question:

Thinking about smallpox and the blankets that the US Gov gave to them that are said to have been polluted by a contagion… what caused the Natives to exhibit those same symptoms and die?

Terrain answer:

Natives were starved, shot, vxd and otherwise murdered. Blankets is a much nicer story – white washing history. The victor writes the history books but they cannot erase everything.
