Starting on July 10th, 1951, there was a period of time in the war that consisted of stalemates and negotiating between the UN and North Korea. Though many battles have been fought, neither side could gain ground and nothing was progressing. Each side ended up with almost equal damages and casualties from every battle. This stalemate would last until the war's end on July 27th, 1953. Silence fell on the battlefield and by 22:00(10 p.m.), no longer were shots fired.
