July 31, 1916, a revolutionary party fell dead in the street, the mother held hands in grief.It had been five years since the Wuchang Uprising and four years since the establishment of the Republic of China.Why did this tragic event happen?First, let’s talk about the background of the event.After stealing the fruits of xinhai’s victory, Yuan Shikai defiantly declared himself emperor in December 1915, leading to the independence of Jiangsu, Anhui, Jiangxi, Shaanxi, Sichuan and Hunan provinces.Hubei, which is sandwiched between these provinces, is not peaceful either.In addition, The hubei army inspector Wang Zhanyuan supported Yuan Shikai to declare himself emperor, so the bomb case in 1916, Hubei ranked first in the country.Second, July 30, 1916, Hankou Huajing Street broke out of the revolutionary events, the slogan is “catch Wang Zhanyuan”.After all, although Yuan Shikai died of illness, “the state is determined”, but Wang Zhanyuan’s old accounts can not be counted.The more important reason, of course, was that the Party was ordered to dissolve, but each person received only a few dozen yuan in dissolution fees.Yuan’s Wang Zhanyuan still occupies a high position and makes a lot of money, but yuan’s Huguojun was dismissed as a beggar?So, at 11 o ‘clock on July 30, 1916, about 300 revolutionaries took up the flag of “the sixth Division of Hubei National Defense Army”, wrapped white cloth around their waists and wearing Red Cross armbands, and attacked hua Jing Road from the Japanese concession.They set fires along the road, attacked police and soldiers, and opened fire with French Concession self-defence regiments.Busy Hua Jing street is on fire everywhere, bombs rumble merchants scramble to flee.According to records, the fire that night, burned hundreds of shops, causing millions of yuan of economic losses.The authorities sent a large contingent of military and police to surround Hua Jing Street and the incident was suppressed two hours later.Most of the more than 100 revolutionaries captured were later executed as well.By August 9, the authorities had ordered all Democrats to return home on time or face severe punishment.The revolutionary event, as the afterwave of the movement to protect the country, came to an end.Like the Revolution of 1911, both campaigns ousted the emperor, but both failed.This was because an era of warlord infighting began, which was called “the Republic of China was inferior to the former Qing Dynasty”.
