Site Overview

Songryeongigol is where the bodies of the armed resistance group were buried after losing their lives in the Uigwi Elementary School combat. On the day, 4 soldiers were killed while many more died among the armed resistance group. Their bodies were left to rot until the next spring when they were moved to and buried in the current burial ground under the order of the army. On May 2004, the “Life Peace Medicanct Pilgrimage Group” cleaned up the grave site and since then, civil society groups take care of the site annually.
