Portsmouth Peace Treaty Trail was created by members of the Portsmouth Peace Treaty Anniversary Committee. Together, they spent several months researching details on the sites that played important roles in the events of August and September 1905. For the first time, scholars and visitors can follow a day-by-day account of the formal/informal diplomacy and both public and private events to learn how “an uncommon commitment to peace became a common virtue” in Portsmouth in 1905.
