Christmas A Century Ago: Remembering World War I

The Delaware Historical Society wishes you and yours a very merry Christmas!  Frank Capra’s film “It’s A Wonderful Life” is the inspiration for three Delaware WWI Soldiers we salute today. Below you will see service records for George Bailey, Clarence, and Mr. Potter ( Private George M. Bailey, Private Clarence T. Wright  and Private Earl M. Potter, that is.)

One hundred years ago today, the Christmas Spirit brought a day of peace in late December to a war weary Europe.
