Illinois remembers the forgotten war – Korea 1950-1953

The State of Illinois is commemorating the 6oth anniversary of the Korean War by supplying information on each month about the state’s involvement in the conflict.
The Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs, Illinois Korean Memorial Association, and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum are sponsoring “Illinois Remembers the Forgotten War” along with media partners the Illinois Press Association and the Illinois Broadcasters Association.
The Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, according to its web site, operates over 60 historic sites and memorials. The Agency also administers the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. The library is the state’s chief historical and genealogical research facility that is home to the state’s world-renowned Abraham Lincoln collection. The library houses the Agency’s collection of more than 12 million items of Illinois history. The museum combines scholarship and showmanship to communicate the amazing life and times of Abraham Lincoln in unforgettable ways and features many of our Lincoln artifacts as well as two main theaters. We administer all state and federal historic preservation and incentive programs in Illinois, including the National Register of Historic Places.
