Description:
 The year is 1918. Thousands of United States troops are involved in World War I and millions will die. In the United States, an additional war is forming. It is called “influenza” and it will take between 40-100 million more lives. President Wilson must make a choice. He needs to decide to either quarantine the troops as the war rages on; or to send the troops over to win the war and hope for the best.

Historian Jim Gibbons will take you on the roller coaster ride of your life: the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic, the decade of the 1910’s and World War I. Gibbons will describe all the ups and downs, twists and turns, fear, mourning and joy of the 1910’s that will take you into the excitement of the Roaring 20’s.
