Working with Dr. Susan Fernsebner in a History 297 seminar at the University of Mary Washington we have constructed this website as an introduction to historical voices and events from China’s Taiping Civil War, a conflict that devastated China between 1850-1864. We would like to thank Dr. Tobie Meyer-Fong for generously sharing her time and insights in an interview for our project and Ryan Brazell of UMW’s Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies for all of his support and helpful suggestions on the project in process.
