Vermont,1800 and Froze to Death: The Cold Year of 1816

September 30, 2023 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Vermont,1800 and Froze to Death: The Cold Year of 1816
1816 has long been known as the year without summer. Vermonters still call it “1800 and Froze to Death,” a year of frosts every month, dark skies, and mysterious lights that caused a widespread belief that a higher power was displeased. In this talk, historian Howard Coffin includes scores of anecdotes on the dark year of failed crops, scarce food, and religious revival.
