Presented by the Veterans of Stephentown, this exclusive one-day event features 20 iconic large-format photographs of the Battle of Huế in 1968 during the Tet Offensive. Taken by photographer John Olson, who lives in nearby Chatham, these images have been featured in publications such as Stars & Stripes and Life Magazine, honored at a 50th anniversary exhibit at the Newseum in Washington, DC, and profiled on CBS Sunday Morning.
"His photo of the unconscious Marine lying on the tank surrounded by his wounded brothers-in-arms now stands among the iconic images of the Vietnam War. Both painterly and heart-wrenching, it was a raw artifact of a hellish 26-day battle that contributed to turning the American public against the war."
