On June 15th, 1859 the incident known as the Pig War occurred on San Juan Island. I’ll be writing more about it in another post, but suffice to say, there will be doings at the San Juan Island National Historical Park this summer for the 150th anniversary.
The “English Encampment” is one of them. An annual event for the past 12 + years, it is very dear to my heart for the friends and history that I have learned there. I’ll be returning as Miss Lydia to run my Academy on July 24th through 26th with about 80 other enactors.
