In the year 2012, the Alabama Department of Archives and History published on Youtube, excerpts from an interview with a woman who survived the 1918 Flu Pandemic. Some folks call it the Spanish Flu. Others called it the Asian Flu. Regardless of what it was called, it reeked havoc on humanity; killing more than fifty million, worldwide.


Listen as Mrs. Edna Register-Boone, who was 100 years old in the year 2012 when she did this interview, talks about what people HAD to do to deal with this.
