An intresting talk about General Pickett and the Pig War with Michael Vouri, the talk includes some excellent photos and clips of Pickett’s house. Vouri has a great talent for describing how a pig and a crop of potatoes nearly caused a war between the USA and Great Britain. Incredible to think that a lone British magistrate threatened to arrest Pickett and his 64 men which was incredibly brave or stupid considering that Pickett and his men were armed with cannons....enjoy.
