PORTSMOUTH - The Port City marked the 110th anniversary of the signing of the Portsmouth Peace Treaty on Saturday afternoon.
Each year, bells ring out across the city in commemoration of the signing that occurred in 1905.
According to organizers at the remembrance ceremony on Saturday, the agreement between Russia and Japan finally eased tensions amidst a massive war.
"Teddy Roosevelt got the Japanese and the Russians to come here in 1905, and for 30 days, they negotiated a treaty that ended the then largest land-and-sea war ever fought between two nations," said Chuck Doleac, who put together Saturday's forum.
Church bells rang out across Portsmouth, in addition to the Naval Yard.
The ceremony was held at the Strawbery Banke Museum.
