When was there a wonderful darkening of the sun?

Answer

On May 19,1780.
NOTE - May 19, 1780, is known in history as "the dark day." On this day over a large portion of
the New World, upon which at this time the eyes of all the world were centered, there occurred, at midday,
a remarkable darkness. "Candles were lighted in many houses. The birds were silent, and disappeared. The
fowls retired to roost." In harmony with the impression God evidently designed should be made by the
sign, many thought the day of judgment was at hand. See next reading.
