How did the great china famine begin?
the Great Famine (or the Great Hunger) is a title usually given to the years between 1845 and 1848. The potato is a most unstable crop, and often failed. The Census of IrelandCommission in 1851 recorded 24 failures of the crop from 1728 onward. The great famine began in September 1845 when potato blight was first seen in Ireland.
