  • Opium War
  • Taiping Rebellion
  • On to Nanjing!
  • Chinese officials began to seize and destroy large quantities of opium. Claiming a violation of free trade rights, Britain responded with military force. In the resulting war, China was devastated.
  • Chinese peasants grew increasingly frustrated with their leaders. A massive peasant army formed and struggled for over a decade for control of China. Twenty million Chinese died in this uprising.
  • Boxer Rebellion

  • Seeing a weakened, vulnerable China, other nations began to move in and carve the nation into spheres of influence.
