2. While unseasonably frigid summer temperatures brought crop failures all over New England, Massachusetts had snow flurries.

3. Savannah, Georgia, had a high temperature of only 46 degrees Fahrenheit on July 4.

4. The eruption of the Tambora volcano in Java the previous year spewed dust and ash into the atmosphere and caused the unusually cold summer of 1816.
