Denver City Resident Reveals Historical Secret About Korean War

The Korean War ended in an Armistice with neither side able to claim outright victory.

Denver City resident Gene Snyder was a type-setter in the U.S. Army and he printed the official Armistice for signing. They had to make several different copies in English, Korean and Chinese and he lets us in on a historical secret.

"We had to print the mistakes for reason they told us that if they weren't the same, that the big wigs had agreeded upon they wouldn't sign it," Gene Snyder said.

A copy of that Armistice, signed on July 27, 1953 sits in the Denver City Museum.
