Storyboard Text

  • No you!
  • In 1945 with the end WWII came the beginning of the division of Korea. Korea was divided between its Northern and Southern parts.
  • You're dead!
  • This land is ours!
  • This land is ours!
  • Being the two most powerful nations at the time, the U.S.S.R. sided with North Korea and the U.S. sided with South Korea. One turned communist and the other became a democracy and it is all divided by the 38th parallel
  • On June 25, 1950 North Korea crossed over the border and attacked the South creating an all out war, so President Truman sent American forces to aid South Korea and prevent the spread of communism.
  • Help!
  • General Douglas MacArthur came up with a brilliant, but bold plan to drive the North Koreans out of the South. He decided to attack the supply lines at Inchon, deep into enemy territory. No one suspected this kind of attack, so it was a success and by October 1950 all North Koreans were driven out of South Korea.
  • And stay out!
  • We'll be back!
  • Uh oh...
  • Once China aided the North on October 19, 1950 the tide of war was completely changed. They had sent 300,000 troops to U.S. and South Korean positions. There was even talk of the use of nuclear weapons.
  • Finally after three years of war, nuclear threats, and many casualties the two sides signed a cease-fire and to this day it is still in place. In the end it was decided that North Korea would remain communist and South Korea would remain democratic.
  • For now...
  • Yay friends!
