The Russians Are Coming

Witte and Rosen in Portsmouth / Strawbery Banke ArchiveStrawbery Banke Presents

100 years ago this week the Treaty of Portsmouth was in a crisis. Negotiations were going badly and hopes fading for a solution to the Russo-Japanese War. Sergei Witte and Baron Rosen of Russian were photographed during a visit to a Portsmouth cathedral in search of spiritaul guidance. The treaty, miraculously, turned around and peace followed as the whole world watched. A century later Portsmouth, NH hosted a grand summer-long celebration of peace.
