historical origin

In the spring of 1935, the Fourth Front Army of the Chinese workers' and peasants' Red Army was ordered to cross the river and advance westward in order to cooperate with the Central Red Army's northward Anti Japanese campaign. Tian Songyao, a warlord of the Kuomintang, gathered 53 regiments to guard the 200 km long river defense line. They tried to stop us from advancing westward by virtue of the Jialing natural moat, waiting for the opportunity to besiege the four front army. In order to smash the enemy's plot and implement the central strategic policy of "crossing the Yangtze River and entering the north and resisting Japan", the Red Army forcibly crossed the Jialing River with Tazishan as the main ferry and launched a fierce attack against the enemy Attack. As the army marched westward, the Kuomintang's bleak operation of the river defense collapsed overnight. The Red Army marched northward and embarked on a new journey.
