Nanchang China History
The capital of Jiangxi province is one of the most famous cities in China with a population of more than 2.5 million people. Called the porcelain capital of China, the other cities often take a back seat, but the province actually has much more to offer. The vast city of Shanghai is now the leading city in East Asia, as it was in the 1920s, and is home to some of Asia's most important companies, including Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, McDonalds and many more.
The border of the provinces is defined by the Gan Jiang (Gan - Jiang), which flows north of Yangzi and whose abbreviated name is Gan River. In this country, there is a place where the People's Army flag is raised and the place of the national flag of Jiangxi.
Looking at the journey of Jiangxi Province, Nanchang is an important heritage in China's history to understand the significant legacy of the area's history in China.
Nanchang (Southern Wealthy) has a glorious past and is also celebrated in contemporary Chinese history as the site of the first communist uprising in 1927. She became famous after Zhou Enlai led the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and retired. The tide of war shifted, and in 333 BC Chu crushed the remaining Yue presence and was later conquered by Qin State in 221 BC. Qin founded the Qin Dynasty that same year, which became the first unified Chinese state. The CCP forced the KMT from the Chinese mainland to Taiwan and enabled the people of Jiangxi Province to establish the People's Republic of China in 1949.
In 589, the rule was transformed into a prefecture called Hongzhou and in 763 it became the provincial centre of Jiangxi, which then ushered in the rapid growth that made it China's most populous province in the 12th century. In 2006, Nanchang was listed as one of the 10 most dynamic cities, becoming the second largest city in China after Beijing and Shanghai and the third most dynamic city in the world. After Guangdong was separated from the mainland by a border between the People's Republic of China (PRC) and Guangxi Province (PPP), Jiang Xi'an acquired its modern borders in 1949.
The city has a long and magnificent history with many cultural relics, the most famous of which is the Pavilion of Prince Teng. Many famous people were represented in the pavilions of Nanchang, such as the Great Hall of the People, the Grand Palace and the Royal Palace.
The Pavilion of Prince Teng is one of the four Great Towers of China and with a height of 1,000 meters, the largest of its kind in the world. The inscription is by a high-ranking military commander, and the pavilions of Nanchang date from the late 19th century and are one of China's "Four Great Towers."
Moreover, in the 1930s, this was the very place where the first army flag of New China was raised. There is no doubt that 11 Chinese imperial dynasties were housed here, from the Ming Dynasty to the Qing Dynasty and the Qin Dynasty.
At the same time, Nanchang housed a military airfield, which was located on an important railway line between Zhejiang Province and Hunan Province, making the city more attractive to the Japanese. Chinese troops were put in position in May 1939, but the position they had taken was to be recaptured by the Japanese at the end of the day. The Chinese defence was under the high command of Xue Yue, with the help of a large number of troops from the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and the Chinese army.
Like Wuhan, Nanchang was an important railway junction and had a strategic position linking eastern and southern China.
Nanchang connects Hangzhou, Changsha and Shanghai, and other railway lines connect other major cities such as Beijing, Guangdong, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Currently, it takes about 3 hours from Beijing to Shanghai, but from here it can be as little as 2 hours and even 4 hours. There are no scheduled flights to or from any of the major Chinese cities, but there is a scheduled flight to Beijing and a flight from Shanghai via Beijing International Airport.
The Nanchang University, which I have visited successively, is also worth a visit, as are the National People's University of China and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Also worth a visit are Nanchangs National Museum of Chinese Culture and History and China National History Museum, China's oldest museum, in Beijing.
It was only the Western Han Dynasty (206BC - AD25) that began to bring the region to the fore, which led to Nanchang becoming an important city on Chinese territory. The Uighurs were suspected by China of having separatist tendencies because of their different culture, language, and religion, but the Manchu people, who conquered China in 1644, kept their identity as Chinese even after they came to power. After the collapse of the Han Dynasty in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, Nancang became one of China's most important cities and a center of trade and economy.
