China: Boxer Rebellion

A comprehensive collection of fascinating photos, paintings, maps, and memorabilia (including specimens of the Campaign Medals issued by most of the Foreign Powers) related to the life in China during the Qing Dynasty. The primary focus of this album is on China's Boxer Rebellion of 1898-1901.

Chinese weapons captured by Japanese troops from within Shui-tzu-yin Fort; a variety of arms including the two man Gingal, which were large and cumbersome but highly accurate as well as powerfully deadly.

Admiral Edward Hobart Seymour, the British Commander in Chief, China Station, upon learning of the plight in Peking (Beijing), on 10 JUN 1900, took a hastily prepared international relief column from Tientsin (Tianjin) but subsequently suffered disaster and was nearly annihilated. Luckily, they stumbled upon an undefended Chinese imperial armory, and sent word back to Tientsin. Another column raced to their rescue and the half starved relief mission was escorted back to safety on 26 JUN.

In response to widespread foreign encroachment upon China's national affairs, Chinese nationalists launch the so-called Boxer Rebellion in Peking. Calling themselves I Ho Ch'uan, or "the Righteous and Harmonious Fists," the nationalists occupied Peking, killed several Westerners, including German ambassador Baron von Ketteler, and besieged the foreign legations in the diplomatic quarter of the city.

The China Inland Mission lost more members than any other missionary agency: 58 adults and 21 children were killed by the Chinese Boxers. However, in 1901, when the allied nations were demanding compensation from the Chinese government, Hudson Taylor refused to accept payment for loss of property or life in order to demonstrate the meekness and gentleness of Christ to the Chinese.
