January 13 It Came Like a Cyclone: Alabama & the 1918 Influenza On Monday at 6:30 p.m., Moon Lake Community Library will host Jim Baggett, who will present this multi-media program on the pandemic. He will also share with us a Mentone connection to the 1918 Influenza. As World War One came to a close, tens of millions of people around the world contracted influenza in the worst pandemic in human history. Alabama was not spared the misery, and almost 150,000 Alabamians became ill in every part of the state. Thousands, including whole families, died. Stores, theaters, fairs, schools, and even churches were closed to try and stop the spread of the disease. With not enough doctors or hospital beds to tend the sick, neighbors pulled together to care for one another. This talk explores the story of the great influenza in Alabama and around the world.
