China’s modern history is a history of humiliation and resistance by the Chinese people. However, the brave and kind Chinese people fought blood and overthrew the feudal dynasty and established a democratic government. In 1921, the great Communist Party of China was born, which pointed out the direction for the Chinese revolution.
