Huntsville in Madison County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
Huntsville Madison County Veterans Memorial
With victory almost assured in November 1950, Communist Chinese forces intervened driving UN forces south. By mid 1951, the lines had stabilized around the original border along the 38th Parallel and peace negotiations had commenced but an armistice ending the war was not signed until 27 July 1953. By that time nearly 140,000 Americans had been killed or wounded.
