Fleeing Koreans - January 8, 1951 Civil Wars World History Education

As their country was battered, during a devastating civil war, many Koreans were turned-into refugees escaping a war zone.

This photo - taken by Army Cpl. Walter Calmus on the 8th of January, 1951 - shows some of those fleeing people.  The U.S. Army provides this description of the image:

Seemingly endless file of Korean refugees slogs through snow outside of Kangnung, blocking withdrawal of ROK [Republic of Korea]  I Corps.
