US House of Representatives and Peace History (Document 5)

Title in English
E.C. Warriner

Patrick Henry Kelley (1867 - 1925) was a politician from the U.S. state of Michigan. He served as U.S. Representative from Michigan's 6th congressional district from 1915-1923. Like Document 2 ( The Notes for the Speech 'Universal Peace and the teaching of History'), the article demonstrates E.C. Warriner's concern with the failure to publicly commemorate and hence educate the public about positive moments of “peace history”. Here we learn from Representative Kelley that instead of celebrating the centenary of the 1814 Treaty of Ghent (signifying 100 years of peace between the U.S. and the U.K.), the U.S. House of representatives chose instead in 1914 to commemorate the opening of the Panama Canal with an Exposition involving the “Navies of the World”.
