April 22, 2019 - Posted in Digital Studios by Andrew Davis

Episode 2 of History In A Nutshell is about the 1918 Flu Pandemic, and its effects on South Carolina. Commonly referred to as the "Spanish Flu," this deadly strain of H1N1 influenza affected the globe, and claimed more lives than World War I did! What made this strain of flu more bizarre was that the main demographic affected was not infants or senior citizens, but rather, young, healthy adults, between twenty and forty years old! 

South Carolina, like the rest of the globe, was not spared from the effects of the Spanish Flu. Find out how the pandemic reached South Carolina, and its socio-economic effects on our great state!
