This Day in History: Truman Orders US Forces to Korea (Saturday, June 27)
This Day in History: Truman Orders US Forces to Korea June 27, 1950 The U.S. President's order came after 90,000 North Korean troops invaded South Korea. A U.N. Security Council approved the U.S. resolution that called for an "immediate cessation of hostilities." Truman addressed the nation by television to announce the U.S. intervention in the Korean "conflict." Despite the absence of a Congressional declaration of war, the draft was extended. Three years later to the day, an armistice was signed ending the war at the same division where it began. More than 200,000 North Korean citizens and close to 800,000 communist soldiers died in the war. Official tally of American casualties totaled 36,516.
