Death on the Highland: Spanish Flu in Macon County
This book discusses briefly the pandemic in Macon County, Tennessee. It also relates biographical information on all the 97 known victims of Spanish Influenza within Macon County’s borders between 1918 and 1920. Of course, the author also relates some details about the United States during the same period. This book is more than a recounting of death and despair. It offers the positive message that despite the difficulty caused by the pandemic, Macon County’s citizens went on, and the living, while never forgetting their loved ones, honored the victims by returning to normalcy as best they could, and quickly as they could.
