Native American Code Talker Peter MacDonald hosted by Tim Tingle
Saturday, October 5 · 10:00 am and 4:00 pm
In the middle of World War II, when he was just 15 years old, Peter MacDonald enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps. The final phase of his training was a top secret Navajo Code School. In the South Pacific, MacDonald and his fellow Code Talkers saved hundreds of thousands of lives with their unbreakable military code. Now 92, MacDonald has traveled to Jonesborough to share his remarkable story.
This performance is made possible through the Sonia King Estate.
