  • Dayton Accords: Diplomacy Ends a War

    By 1995, the Bosnian War had already claimed 200,000 lives and displaced 2 million others. On November 1, 1995, American diplomats brought the presidents of Croatia, Bosnia, and Serbia to the negotiating table to end the war. These negotiations took place at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base outside of Dayton, Ohio. The agreement that came out of these discussions would be known as the Dayton Accords. Discover the history of the Dayton Accords in this online exhibit.
