Join Bosler and the Cumberland County Historical Society as speaker Cara Curtis, Archives and Library Director of the Cumberland County Historical Society, presents a lecture on Carlisle and the 1918 Flu Pandemic. The 1918 influenza pandemic began in the spring of 1918, as World War I was soon coming to an end. That conflict would claim 16 million lives, while the flu pandemic would go on to claim 50 million. It spread from the densest urban areas on the east coast to remote regions of Alaska and would not abate until 1920. This lecture will delve into the 1918 pandemic’s impact on Carlisle and the surrounding area and how residents dealt with what was, at the time, the world’s second most deadly pandemic.
