Welcome to a history of the Eruption of Mount Tambora: the largest event in human history that you have probably never heard of! Mount Tambora, in short, was the largest volcanic eruption in recorded human history, launching enough rock in the air to nearly fill the Grand Canyon. However, Tambora’s effects were far beyond what you might think a volcano might cause. Along with massive destruction due to lava, smoke, and projectiles, Tambora also assisted in the outbreaks of multiple pandemics, extreme short term climate change, and even in the rapid passing of state constitutions!
