Notes

Abstract:
This print shows a battle scene at Tongxi city gate during the Taiping rebellion, in which the rebels were finally crushed by the Manchu imperial army in July 1864. Urged by their leader Hong Xiuquan, who believed he was on a divine mission from God to exterminate the Manchus, the Christian rebels wanted to overthrow the Qing government and had named their new dynasty 'Heavenly Kingdom of Great Peace' (Taiping tianguo). The inscription clarifies that the thieves were totally eradicated and the longhaired rebels were completely wiped out. They were terrified and afraid to move. The courier brought the goods new that the imperial army had used a really clever scheme, and communicated that they were victorious. They earnestly pitied the people, who departed their villages and ran away without even turning around for their wives, when they saw the army approach they escaped the calamity by taking refuge deep in the mountains and waited for glory to shine.
