1918 Spanish Flu

I was chatting with a friend about the Coronavirus and he brought up the Spanish Flu aka The 1918 influenza pandemic and how so many people died. Between 1918 and 1919 the virus spread worldwide. 500 million people were infected with the virus, the number of deaths was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide with 675,000 being in the United States. This is still the most severe pandemic to date.

This got me thinking about my ancestors and what were they reading about the Spanish Flu from their local newspaper? How did this affect their everyday life? Schools were closed, public meeting and gathering were postponed so that meant no church services, or lodge meetings or parties, any large gathering was postponed.

Check out the newspaper articles I found in The Baldwin Times newspaper about the virus.
