1918 by Melina Druga

Delight tempered by disease.

 

On Nov. 11, 1918, 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, a pandemic 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.
