Belated March 4th illustration

An illustration about March 4th. The date which brought us the first recorded case of the 1918 Spanish flu, ushering in a global pandemic that killed 50-100 million people, the landslide election victory for Robert Mugabe in 1980 starting him on the not very long road to dictatorship and the 2001 bombing attempt of the BBC television center.

(Nice things did happen on the 4th of March too, like the US congress sitting for the first time, effectively putting the United States constitution into effect as well as the writing an proposition of the Bill of Rights and the first female member of the house of representatives is elected.)
