Portsmouth NH Cherry Tree Planting | In the spirit of the Portsmouth NH Peace Treaty of 1905

In the summer and fall of 1905 US President Theodore Roosevelt brokered a peace treaty between Japan and Russia.

He brought both sides to Portsmouth New Hampshire to negotiate the terms of that treaty which became known as the The Treaty of Portsmouth of 1905. This historic treaty marked the formal end of the Russo-Japanese War and marked the beginning of a new era of diplomatic negotiations.
