Join us at the Cumberland County Historical Society and let Mr. March teach us about the Police Action in Korea. “Die for a tie” was the name American soldiers gave the Korean conflict. The “Forgotten War” introduced napalm, jets, helicopters, a hot war again communism, one year troop rotation, and was marked by a harsh environment characterized by mountainous terrain and extreme weather elements often associated with Vietnam. In three short years the conflict resulted in nearly the same number of American casualties as Vietnam, and yet it is overshadowed by the conflicts that preceded and followed. This war without a home front is a fascinating study of life and technology in the 1950s.

Covid Info: Due to the rise in Covid cases AND to the older demographics of those who work in the CCHS, we are required to wear masks to ENTER AND WALK THRU the building.  Once in the classroom, we are free to remove our masks.
