"We Are Afraid": Spanish Flu in Clay County Tuesday, November 19, 6:00PM - 7:00PM Hjemkomst Center Please join us at the Hjemkomst Center at 6:00PM on Tuesday, November 19, as HCSCC Senior Archivist Mark Peihl offers a local history of the deadliest flu pandemic in recorded history: the 1918 H1N1 "Spanish" Flu. The disease came to the Red River Valley in late-September, 1918, and proceeded to infect thousands and kill hundreds in the Red River Valley. Globally, the flu pandemic infected about one-third of the population and killed between 50-100 million people (about 2.5% - 5% of the population). In Fargo-Moorhead, roughly 1 out of 100 people succumbed to the disease. Mark will reconstruct and reexamine the local front of the flu fight. This event is offered in conjunction with our current exhibition, War, Flu, & Fear: World War I and Clay County. Seats may be reserved online here.
