James L. Meredith: 1924—2014 | Passages

  • Dec 17, 2014 at 12:00PM

James Meredith could be found most summer weekends at English Camp, explaining what it would have been like to be a British soldier on San Juan Island during the Pig War, proudly wearing his red-and-blue woolen British uniform. He was very gratified last year to be honored as "Volunteer of the Century" by his fellow, equally dedicated, re-enactors and park employees.
