Westchester County Veterans Museum presents:

A War Without End

Unlike World War II and the Vietnam War, both of which had very specific endings, the Korean War never had a conclusion. The conflict began on June 25, 1950, when the Communist North Korean People’s Army invaded the pro-Western Republic of Korea to the south.

A seesaw war ensued characterized by the swift movement of battle lines up and down the Korean peninsula. In the end, an armistice was signed on July 27, 1953, which essentially maintained the pre-war status quo. No peace treaty was ever signed. The years of war saw some of the greatest reverses in the history of the U.S. armed forces, the entry of China’s massive army into the war, the downfall of an American military icon and much more. Korea is again in the headlines. It is still a tinderbox for war.
