From a geographical point of view, Hongjiang River, although it is a small place, gathers Yuanshui, Wushui, and Shuishui that lead directly to Dongting into the Yangtze River. The river is wide and the water is vast, like a torrent, so it has the title of "Hongjiang". In the early years, Hongjiang was just an ordinary post and commercial port. It developed into a giant town with thousands of fireworks during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It is famous for collecting and distributing tung oil, wood, white wax, and opium. It is the material of the five provinces of Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangxi, Hunan and Shu. The distribution center is the economic, cultural and religious center of southwestern Hunan.

One of the ancient cities in China is praised by relevant experts as the "living fossil of the budding capitalism in inland China". At first, I had never heard of the small city of Hongjiang. Although due to work, I traveled between Hunan and Guizhou several times, all transiting in Huaihua. She was always by my side, but I ignored her existence. It was a friend who told me that next time I was on a business trip, I could go to Hongjiang to see if I was free. Then I knew there was this small town. Chinese folklorist Mr. Lin He believes that the earliest Silk Road in China was the Water Silk Road that began in the Shang Dynasty 3000 years ago. The route was that Sichuan’s materials passed through the Yangtze River into Youshui, and then entered Yuanling (Ancient) via Youyang and Xiushan. The Yuanshui River in Qianzhong County (the prefecture of Qianzhong County) was replaced by a boat on the Hongjiang River in Xiangxi Province through Huangping, Guizhou (the former site of the Lan Kingdom) to the source of the Qingshui River, and then the caravan was changed to Yunnan, Burma or Vietnam, and finally to the Western Regions via land or the Indian Ocean. . As an important transit point on the Maritime Silk Road. Hong Jiang also had the opportunity to nurture and produce a shopping mall. The Hongjiang Ancient Shopping Center has "Qichong, Eight Alleys, and Nine Streets". The scale is very large and there are many things to see. I went there in the afternoon, and I was afraid that I would not be able to return to Huaihua too late. See the leopard in the text. Hongjiang, an ancient city with the best preservation of historical relics; Hongjiang, an original ecological scenic spot that has not yet been commercialized; Hongjiang, a good place for you to visit!

丁香树It is very convenient to drive here by car, there is a parking lot. It is good to get tickets for free entry with your ID card. Such a patriotic educational base should not really sell tickets. It should let more people come here to feel and remember the anti-Japanese feat of the year. There is still a lot of historical materials in the memorial, you can see the whole process and background of the downfall.
