paragraph #2

The boxer rebellion

Boxer Rebellion was in 1900 Beginning in 1898 many peasants in northern China began to get together into a secret society known as I-ho ch'üan (Righteous and Harmonious Fists) called the Boxers by Western press. Members of the secret society practiced boxing and calisthenic rituals hence the nickname the Boxers which they believed would make them impervious to bullets.

At first the Boxers wanted to destroy the Ch'ing dynasty which had ruled China for over 250 years and wanted to rid China of all foreign influence which they considered a threat to Chinese culture. When the Empress Dowager backed the Boxers the Boxers turned solely to ridding China of foreigners.

By late 1899, bands of Boxers were massacring Christian missionaries and Chinese Christians. By May 1900, the Boxer Rebellion had come out of the countryside and was being waged in the capital of Peking. To help their fellow countrymen and to protect their interests in China an international force of 2,100 American, British, Russian, French, Italian, and Japanese soldiers were sent to subdue the rebellion.

On June 18, 1900, the Empress Dowager ordered all foreigners to be killed. Several foreign ministers and their families were killed before the international force could protect them. On August 14, 1900, the international force took Peking and subdued the rebellion.The Boxer Rebellion weakened the Ch'ing dynasty's power and hastened the Republican Revolution of 1911 that overthrew the boy emperor and made China a republic. The boxer rebellion played a big part of china's history.

This is a picture of john Hay. Who was the secretary of state for william Mckinley and Theodore Roosevelt. He wrote a agreement letter to the other European countries with rules that every country who had open trade with china would have to follow. Many other countries had already had an open door trade with china before America. In the agreement that he wrote and the rules that he listed was followed.
