Segregation Ends

On Sept. 25, 1957, President Eisenhower sent Federal troops to Little Rock, Ark.

With 300 United States Army troops, of the 101st Airborne Division, standing guard, nine black children were escorted to Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, days after unruly white crowds had forced them to withdraw.

Earlier, the President federalized the Arkansas National Guard and authorized calling the Guard and regular Federal forces to remove obstructions to justice in Little Rock school integration.
