Chapter Summary

The people of the Qing dynasty inherited the Great Wall building system for their fortresses. Their buildings are modelled after Efanggong Palace. During the second Manchu Invasion in 1636, when Emperor Yizonglie was informed of the invasion, he ordered Brigadier-General Chen Hongfan to reinforce naval strength immediately by transferring soldiers from every regiment and on so doing, to dispatch a rescue squad to Korea. The Jiuguangning Wall is beneath the Yiwulüshan Mountains. The Jiuguangning Wall is duplicated as an inner wall and an outer wall. The Beizhen Temple is below the Yiwulü Mountain. The Great Wall winds its way along the Yiwulü Mountain foothills to Jiaoshan Temple. Every peak had a beacon mound until the Wall reached more even terrain. The building skills and architecture of the Great Wall and its appurtenances are modelled after the traditional features of Chinese design and construction handed down through the ages.
