It's just over 50 years since the eyes of the world were fixed on a U.S. Navy intelligence ship built in Kewaunee and captured by North Korean forces. The USS Pueblo incident was also a milestone in the Cold War. Author Chris Sturdevant, who is also Chairman of the Midwest Chapter of the Cold War Museum, has written the book Cold War Wisconsin. He says despite demands for a quick release of the hostages or stronger measures against North Korea, the U.S. had to walk a very fine line.
Chris Sturdevant will be talking more about the Pueblo incident and other Cold War events, and their impact on Wisconsin, during a presentation February 2nd at the Kewaunee Historical Society on Ellis Street.
