The Spanish Influenza of 1918 presented by Paul Allison
Remember last winter when the terrible flu season had us all taking some extra precautions? Our own Paul Allison takes us further back in time to the winter of 1918 and the peak of the Spanish Influenza’s devastation that plagued the world. What was it like locally and nationally to live through such a pandemic, which took as many as 50 million lives worldwide? Could such a horrific sickness strike again?
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 pm with the talk to begin at 7 pm.
