- “A Korean War Retrospective: A Conflicted Legacy of Misunderstandings, Memories and Memorials,” Lecture by Former Director of the Truman Presidential Library and Former President of the National Council on Public History Michael Devine*
Tuesday, September 10 / 6-7 pm / Clark A 103
Korea is often referred to as the “Forgotten War.” In the pantheon of American wars, it is overshadowed by World War II, which ended just five years earlier, and eclipsed by America’s long and painful involvement in Vietnam. Yet the Korean War of 1950-1953 brought about profound and lasting changes in the United States and East Asia. Recent decades have witnessed an extraordinary reexamination of the war and its legacy, as world leaders struggle to maintain East Asia’s unprecedented peace and prosperity amidst the ever present tension on the Korean peninsula.
