Remembering the Flu Pandemic of 1918

In the fall of 1918 – one hundred years ago – the Spanish flu pandemic, one of the greatest medical catastrophes in history, was sweeping across the globe. Millions of people all over the world died from this disease. Manchester and Connecticut suffered serious losses during the fall and winter of 1918-1919. Mary Ann Handley will lead a presentation about this episode to help us understand what happened, what the local responses were, and what we can we learn from it. Manchester Town Troubadour Bill Ludwig has learned some songs of the period and will join us.
