What happened to that other major virus, the one of 1917? Anyone know?


My Grand mother lost her husband and her first born in San Francisco in 1917 during this pandemic. This link explains it all pretty well.


Did you know Spain had nothing to do with it? It likely started at a military outpost in Kansas. But Spain was on our shit list at the time so we blamed it on them, like we did the Maine.
