Tule Lake Pilgrimage has filled up early
Astonishing to learn that the Tule Lake Pilgrimage, held each Fourth of July weekend in even-numbered years, has filled up as of mid-March. That has to be the soonest ever, or anyway the soonest in ten years. Seems to be new interest this year in a perennially difficult subject. The Tule Lake Pilgrimage remembers and discusses the wartime incarceration of 18,000 Japanese Americans in far northeastern California, in what's now the town of Newell. The core of the site is now included in a National Monument.
