This is a program we all need to watch now-tonight.
It is the show, American Experience , on your local PBS station.
Season 10, Episode 5

My grandmother's sister Elizabeth died at the age of 2 from that flu. My mother was named for her. My great grandmother never recovered from that loss. She was in a wheelchair for the rest of her life-which oddly was longer than either her daughter or my mother.ReplyDelete
I'll have to see if I can find the show. Thank you for the recommendation.ReplyDelete

My Mom was 4 years old in 1918. How I wish I could talk to her about her family’s experience.ReplyDelete
