“Influenza: The 20th Century’s Deadliest Pandemic”

Michael L. Strauss AG

Categories: M, IR

Talk Abstract:
In 1918 with the war raging in Europe, a silent deadly killer traveled with the soldiers from the United States over to the war zones in France. Considered America?s deadliest epidemic, it killed more people here than the soldiers that lost their lives fighting. As quickly as the virus spread it disappeared by early 1919. Many genealogical and historical records document our ancestors who died or survived this terrible period of our history.
