The 1815 volcanic eruption of Mount Tambora on the island of Sumbawa in what is now Indonesia is the 3rd largest in recorded history. It hurled 38 cubic miles of ash and cinders nearly 30 miles into the sky, destroying all vegetation on Sumbawa, and killing tens of thousands of people there, and on neighboring islands. Untold numbers of domestic and wild animals, birds, and insects perished. Volcanic ash was injected into the stratosphere in amounts sufficient to alter the world’s climate for several years, with catastrophic effects for human populations in all corners of the globe. When Tambora erupted, Sir Stamford Raffles, the British Governor of Java was hundreds of miles to the west. The sharp crack was initially for cannon fire. When Raffles finally realized the full extent of the disaster, he responded by sending relief ships to Sumbawa, though most of the people had perished. Although there had been some rumblings in months previous, Tambora had long been dormant. Some attributed the shaking and bellowing to the anger of the gods, while others recalled an old story about a holy man who had the power to re-animate dogs, which, when invoked, would always be accompanied by some sort of volcanic activity.
