About this Item
- The U.S., World War I and Spreading Influenza in 1918 (Online Office Hours)
- "The war was over there. The epidemic was over here." From influenza outbreaks in crowded military camps stateside to ship convoys carrying infected troops and Red Cross personnel overseas, World War I contributed to the spread of the worst modern pandemic in global history. Join us for a conversation with a Library of Congress historian. We'll trace the steps of Red Cross volunteer Dorothy Kitchen O'Neill and explore items from the Library's exhibition "Echoes of the Great War: American Experiences of World War I." We'll also examine how the war spread the disease more broadly and affected the war's outcome, including Woodrow Wilson's negotiation of the famed Treaty of Versailles.
