    Wow, i guess you do learn something new everyday. very interesting list, great work!

    i was wondering if you could write a reference list or something, like where you got all your information. not that i dont trust you, it’s just that if i wanted to read more about a certain point i wont know where to start (apart from google). if you provide reference, then it can save alot of extra read of everyone :). i think all the top ten lists on this website should have references.

      For all who are doing research on this topic, and/or wish further information, the Wikipedia entry on the 1918 Flu Pandemic has extensive footnotes, and suggestions for further reading. Enjoy!

    My grandmother, who was born in 1910 and is still alive, 102 yrs old remembers her mother and father going to help relatives who had the flu in Missouri and when they came home my grandma and her mother became sick with the flu. She remembers her mother getting so sick they sent my grandma to neighbors thinking her mother was going to die that night. She remembers the doctor coming to their house and says there was nothing he could do for them, just give them aspirin and sit by her side. Both my grandma and her mother recovered from the flu. It is amazing it is not more well known. I had no idea how many people died from the flu and how World War 1 played an integral part in spreading the illness.
