Smart Towns Lecture Series: The Summer of 1816

Wednesday, September 16


Major climatic events in the world created a summer along the east coast of the United States with freezing temperatures every month of the year, major crop failures and panic. By 1817, a westward movement started, enhanced by the opening of the Erie Canal. The settlement of Rochester, Michigan was part of this migration, the belief of manifest destiny, and the growth of the Midwest.
