The Korean War Memorial
The Korean War started on June 25, 1950, after the North Korean troops crossed over the 38th parallel and invaded South Korea. The United Nations issued an army, led by US General Douglas MacArthur, in order to drive the North Koreans out of South Korea. In the year 1953, the war ended with the reestablishment of the 38th parallel as the divider between North and South Korea. Thousands of US soldiers lost their lives in this war and monuments of these brave soldiers were built across the nation.
