Extra: San Juan Island, the Pig War of 1859 and the Civil War in the Pacific Northwest | Civil War Daily Gazette.

A whole lot of history crammed into one little island.

 

 

I grew up just south of the San Juan Islands, and spent many a weekend cruising through them. Here’s a fascinating look at one of the stranger “wars” America has participated in. The characters involved would go on to be major players in American military history.

Thanks for finding this, Craig!
