Unravelling the Mystery of New England's Day of Darkness   Ancient Origins

In the midst of the American Revolutionary War, darkness descended on New England at midday, the darkness so complete candles were used. Many people thought Judgment Day was at hand. Diaries of the preceding days mention smoky air and a red sun at morning and evening. Birds sang their evening songs, farm animals returned to their roosts and barns, and humans were bewildered. Some went to church, many sought the solace of the tavern, and more than a few nearer the edges of the darkened area commented on the strange beauty of the preternatural half-light. The primary cause of the event is believed to have been a combination of smoke from forest fires, a thick fog, and cloud cover. It did not disperse until the middle of the next night.
