One of the many fine treasures of the great metropolis that is Kansas City, MO is the National WWI Museum and Memorial.

The towering monument and the accompanying museum is a must visit when in the city and I have been there many times and it is a fitting tribute to the Great War. The National WWI Museum and Memorial also has wonderful online resources including online exhibitions, including one featuring the history of The Christmas Truce of 1914.

About The Christmas Truce of 1914 online exhibition from the National WWI Museum and Memorial:

“On Christmas Eve of 1914, along parts of the Western and—to a much smaller extent—Eastern Fronts a spontaneous truce was declared among the weary, entrenched combatants of the Great War. A miracle? A myth? Read essays by noted historians and explore firsthand accounts from soldiers themselves. Then decide for yourself the real story behind the Christmas Truce.”
