By Jeffrey Sikkenga

We’re living through history. There has been much speculation about what the coronavirus means for America and for our future as a country.

While none of us has lived through anything like this before, it is not the first time our country has been struck by a pandemic.

The 1918 Flu Pandemic, at the end of World War I, infected nearly one-third of the world’s population and tragically killed approximately 675,000 Americans.

The grit and ingenuity of Americans will carry us through now, as it did then and many times since.

To test your knowledge of this earlier pandemic, which is being referred to regularly by medical experts and others, the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University created the quiz below.

[wp_quiz id=”141115″]

Answers: 1-B, 2-C, 3-C, 4-D, 5-A, 6-B, 7-A, 8-D, 9-B, 10-C
