The eighth in a series of weekly historical radio shows produced on the campus of Georgetown University. This show starts in the modern day with a businessman bemoaning being asked to to help West Germans who are in trouble. His son was killed in action during World War 2 and he still holds hard feelings against the Germans. One of his workers tells him he should forgive his enemies. He tells his boss about the Christmas of 1776 and the George Washington's leadership during the Battle of 1776 against the Hessians. Washington showed mercy to Colonel Johann Rall and his men and the man urges his boss to be like Washington and practice Christian forgiveness and forgive his enemies. (Note: at the end of this episode there is approximately four minutes of an unidentified radio show, possibly a Georgetown University Forum broadcast from October 14, 1951 titled North and South America - Partners in Progress. Wilfred Mauck and Frank Blair are heard.)
