In front of the War Memorial Auditorium is the Legislative Plaza. The large open square is also referred to as the War Memorial Plaza. This is where you can admire two, life-size bronzes of Korean War soldiers. On either side of this tribute by sculptor Russ Faxon is a detailed description of the three-year conflict between North and South Korea (1950 – 1953). Toward the end it is referred to as the Forgotten War. 10,500 Tennesseans served during the Korean War. Their sacrifice should never be forgotten.
