As I was scanning the 'Net for some news articles, I come across a Veteran's Day article, which mentioned that one of the veterans in attendance was a "Pig War" reenactor. I thought I knew alot, but that one was a stumper. Could the writer meant Bay of Pigs? Nope. Pig War. It was a little known stand-off border dispute between the US and Canada just before the American Civil War broke out.
The Pig War happened on San Juan Island, Washington State, and a reenactment group actually covers this historical dispute for the National Park Service. Interesting read.
