The saddest thing is it has happened over and over...time and time again, all over the world since then. The potato blight in Ireland needn't have resulted in millions dying and millions more emigrating as there was plenty of food available as mentioned by several people above. You'd think we would learn from this but the tragedy is that millions of innocent people are starving this very day for similarly avoidable reasons.
