Abstract: "As the Great War came to an end in the fall of 1918 , a lethal disease spread across the globe. By the time the epidemic concluded in March 1919 , more people died from the ""Spanish€ Influenza than died in the war , including an estimated 13 , 000 North Carolinians. This lecture will explore the deadly influenza virus strain and its rampage throughout the eastern counties of North Carolina. The impact on eastern North Carolina society , medical care , and public health will also be explored by examining primary sources from the period."
