The year is 1918. Thousands of United States troops are involved in World War I and millions will die. Stateside, an additional war is forming. It is called “influenza” and it will take millions more lives. President Woodrow Wilson must make a choice: to quarantine the troops as the war rages on, or to send the troops over to win the war and hope for the best.
In this program, historian Jim Gibbons takes you on a roller-coaster ride through the 1910s, including the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic and World War I, describing the twists, turns, fear, mourning, and joy of a decade that paved the way for the excitement of the Roaring '20s.
