Misled by reports of a melting polar ice cap, the British Admiralty embarked upon a campaign of Arctic exploration in search of a Northwest passage to the far east. It ended in total failure.
In the center, four cavorting skeletons stalk dancers at a masked ball in Paris in the spring of 1832. Four Harlequins and four Columbines succumb to the ravages of the second cholera pandemic.
The rapid glaciation induced in the Swiss Alps by the volcanic winter led scientists to develop a new theory: that glaciers, responding to climate change, were in fact responsible for shaping the earth.
Manifest Destiny and the Grim Reaper joined hands to force the Cherokee nation to migrate to Oklahoma, along the cruel “Trail of Tears”. Westward ho the wagons! The term “Ohio Fever” was coined for the mass exodus from New England. Starving children sat in snow drifts, waiting to die, as fierce storms battered England, uprooting centuries-old trees.
As Chinese society collapsed in the face of flood and famine, the poet Li Yuyang recorded events in a set of poems, which followed a traditional Chinese genre known as the Poetry of the Seven Sorrows. In Switzerland, starving mobs rioted, robbing bakeries for flour and food. The slaughter of horses for food prompted Karl Drais to develop an alternate form of transportation, a prototype of the bicycle. The new strain of cholera claimed millions of lives in India, in 1817. Bodies were burned in funeral pyres, or hauled to the river by elephants and dumped. By 1830, cholera had spread to Northern Europe, reaching Paris two years later.
