Taiping Rebellion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1825 words)
The Taiping Rebellion (1851–1864) was one of the bloodiest conflicts in history, a clash between the forces of Imperial China and those inspired by a Hakka self-proclaimed mystic named Hong Xiuquan (洪秀全), who was also a Christian convert who had claimed that he was the new Messiah and younger brother of Jesus Christ.
In this sense the Taiping army was a prototype for the People's Liberation Army of the twentieth century.
The Nian Rebellion (捻軍起義) (1853–1868), and several Muslim rebellions in the southwest (1855–1873) and the northwest (1862–1877) were led by the remants of the Taiping rebels.
