A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Korean War Collection - The Korean War began June 25, 1950 as North Korean forces crossed the 38th parallel invading South Korea. The Security Council of the United Nations immediately demanded the withdrawal of troops and authorized the use of force by member nations to restore peace. Pres. Truman authorized American ground forces while Gen. MacArthur flew to S. Korea to assess the military situation including support from the U.S. Navy and Air Force. The war was the first to use the advantages of helicopters. On July 7 the U.N. gave the U.S. full command of U.N. troops and MacArthur became chief of U.N. forces. It appeared that N. Korea would overrun the entire south until a daring surprise invasion by Marines at Inchon near Seoul. In November the Chinese Communists entered the war and by December the U.N. forces were pushed back to the 38th parallel, and then came the loss of Seoul for the 2nd time. The war seesawed back and forth, even seeing MacArthur being fired by Truman in April, 1951. On Nov. 28, 1951, at Panmunjon, an agreement was reached for the establishment of a truce line roughly along the 38th parallel. Fighting continued and not until April 1953 did an actual release of prisoners begin. An armistice took effect July 28, 1953. General Eisenhower had been elected president Nov. 5, 1952, and as he promised before the election, he had visited Korea in December, 1952. At that time he warned that a definite victory could not be achieved without "enlarging the war" but said he was confident the Allies "are all here together to see it through. Then as the armistice took effect in July, 1953, Ike asked Congress for $200 million in emergency aid for South Korea, and former President Truman offered his hope that the armistice meant peace for Korea. The last U.N. troops were withdrawn from Korea on August 12, 1954. This marked the first time the United Nations as a body had banded together to resist an aggressive act by another country. U.S. troops remain in South Korea to this day as tensions continue.
