This site is dedicated to first person accounts of significant events from history.

This project got started when during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, I continually heard references to the 1918 Spanish Flu (or Influenza) pandemic. I remembered that years ago, my father sent me a copy of a diary written by his Aunt Clara from 1918-1919, when young people all around her were succumbing to the disease. I thought that other people might be interested in what was happening 100 years ago, when the world was fighting a devastating virus.
