On June 15, 1859, Lyman Cutlar, an American settler on San Juan Island, shot and killed a pig belonging to the British Hudson's Bay Company, triggering an international confrontation. General Harney was officially rebuked and later reassigned for allowing the situation to get out of hand, and President Buchanan sent the commanding general of the Army, General Winfield Scott, to contain the situation. General Scott and Governor Douglas of British Columbia negotiated an agreement in which a token force from each country would occupy the island until a settlement was reached. San Juan Island remained under joint occupation for 12 years, but the pig was the only casualty of what came to be known as the "Pig War."

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Winfield Scott (1786-1866) was arguably the premier soldier of his era. More than anyone else, he was responsible for the professionalization of the U.S. Army during his long career (1807-61)." "Allan Peskin's research in the National Archives unearthed records from the War Department that support his portrayal of General Scott as a forward-looking managerial officer who accurately foresaw the coming of dramatic changes in technology and business principles for the military." "Winfield Scott and the Profession of Arms is a balanced and thorough biography of this military figure. Scholars and military historians will welcome its significant contributions to the literature."--Jacket
