War, adapted from his grandmother Janice Woods Windle’s novel of the same name. The attention of the nation was briefly directed 100 years ago toward Seguin, Texas, where young German-American William Adolph Bergfeld, Will Windle’s great-great grandfather, was put on trial for treason at a time of heightened nationalism and hostility toward foreigners.
