Sixty Years Ago Today . . .

. . . at 2200 hrs local time (approximately 0900 Eastern), major hostilities in Korea ended.  The Korean Armistice Agreement was signed at 1000 local on 27 July 1953.  It became effective twelve hours later.

The war had lasted 3 years, 1 month, and 3 days.  Negotiating the Armistice had taken slightly over two years.
