Spanish Flu Pandemic Tempers Celebration

1918 by Melina Druga

The war ends, prompting spontaneous and boisterous parties to erupt in cities throughout the United States and Canada.

Joy follows the deadliest month of the Spanish flu pandemic, an event that would kill more Americans and Canadians than the war.

Part five in the A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and WW1 series.  The series explores journalism history by examining how newspapers reported on the war, painting a picture of the war as our ancestors knew it.

I've enjoyed this series focusing on very specific events during World War I, and if you are a history buff like me, you might like this laser focus on perceptions of two different nations involved in the conflict.
