2020 Bardstown, KY postponed due to CoVID-19 Pandemic

Below is an article on the Black Death Pandemic that overran Europe from 1347 to 1353. If there can be such a thing as an optimistic news article on the worst pandemic the world has ever experienced, this is it. Unfortunately many of the details concerning the Black Death run in parrallel with our CoVID-19 Pandemic. Thankfully many of the details are significantly better. You may enjoy the article; you may also want to check out the Great Courses: The Black Death: The World’s Most Devastating Plague.
