Description:  With World War I in its early stages and hate between enemies reaching extremely high levels, hope of peace seemed like an impossible dream.

Carols soon filled the air, and come Christmas morning, both sides emerged for a day of peace—a Chrismas Truce. Join us as we remember the Christmas Truce of 1914.

Wessel Whittaker and the First Days of New Buffalo
Learn about hapless Great Lakes skipper Wessel Whittaker, who ran his ship aground near what is now Grand Beach in an 1834 storm and went on to found New Buffalo on the shore of Lake Potawatami at the mouth of the Galien River. Although his dream of building a major Lake Michigan seaport never materialized—and although New Buffalo almost disappeared after his death—Whittaker’s town eventually grew up to become a major Midwestern resort destination.

The World War I Christmas Truce
With World War I in its early stages and hate between enemies reaching extremely high levels, hope of peace seemed like an impossible dream. On the first Christmas during this Great War, British and German soldiers found themselves in a no-man’s land, trying to enjoy a quiet Christmas Eve in the trenches. Carols soon filled the air, and come Christmas morning, both sides emerged for a day of peace—a Chrismas Truce. Join us as we remember the Christmas Truce of 1914.
