Arkansas Remembers: The Forgotten War

Arkansas Remembers: The Forgotten War
60th Anniversary Exhibits at the Arkansas State Capitol

The Korean War has often been overshadowed by other conflicts, such as World War II and the Vietnam War. Much of the history of the war exists only in the memories and mementos of its veterans. Approximately 6,300 Arkansans served in the war, including six who received the Congressional Medal of Honor. The Butler Center for Arkansas Studies is gathering Arkansas-related Korean War materials to preserve this important history.

Exhibits on display by the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, Arkansas Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Office of the Secretary of State.
