Event

Captain George E. Pickett Returns to Bellingham

       Civil War buffs and historians will be transported back 150 years to that pivotal time when our Nation struggled to determine unity and states' rights. For one night only, September 7, 2013, Mike Vouri will portray Captain George E. Pickett in a riveting two-hour presentation in Bellingham, Washington. Mike Cohen, who has accompanied him for many years, will be playing and singing Civil War music. They will be donating their skills and efforts to raise funds for the Pickett House Restoration Fund.
      The Pickett House, located at 910 Bancroft Street, Bellingham, Washington is the only remaining building in which Major General George E. Pickett resided. In 1857, after Captain Pickett married a native woman, their son, James Tilton Pickett, the accomplished artist, was born here. After 157 years, this historical treasure needs many repairs and careful restoration.
Hundreds of enthusiastic audiences have attended Mike's extraordinary presentations and marveled at how a U.S. Army Captain from Washington Territory became a Major General in the Confederate Army. At the Battle of Gettysburg, Pickett's Charge contributed to the turning point of the Civil War.
Mike Vouri is the Chief of Interpretation and Historian for San Juan Island National Historical Park, located on San Juan Island in the state of Washington. He has direct responsibility for the park's interpretation program, which includes historical research, program development, interpretive publications and wayside exhibits, historic reenactments and community affairs. He also is the park's volunteer coordinator.
During his nearly six years with the Whatcom Museum, Vouri was an arts advocate for the museum and worked tirelessly to encourage cooperation between the various arts organizations in Whatcom County.  He also is a professional historian and curated several exhibitions, including George Pickett and the Frontier Army Experience and A Century On Prospect: Bellingham's Old City Hall.

He is the author of The Pig War: Standoff at Griffin Bay and Outpost of Empire: The Royal Marines and the Joint Occupation of San Juan Island, Images of America: The Pig War, Friday Harbor and San Juan Island.
