What was the Boxer Rebellion?
|Q:||Ask a Question about What was the Boxer Rebellion?|
A revolt against all foreigners began in northern China in 1900. It was led by a secret society popularly called the Boxers. The members of the society attacked many foreign embassies and massacred the Christian Chinese population.
However an international force managed to prevent the Boxers from carrying out further attacks, and forced the Chinese government to give more concessions to the foreign traders.
The railways were the key to opening up the huge plains of the mid-western United States of America, providing access for settlers and for trade.
