1796 · White Lotus Rebellion

Age 4

The White Lotus Rebellion began in 1794, when followers of the White Lotus movement rose up to protest taxes. The scope of the protest grew and gathered further support from a wide range of ordinary people. Eventually, the rebellion was large enough that the government became concerned. Despite a lack of organization, the rebels managed to score a defeat against Qing imperial forces. It wasn't until the 1800's began that the Qing dynasty changed tactics and began to suppress the rebellion. However, the conflict marked a negative turning point for the Qing Dynasty's dominance.
1807 · Protestant Missions in China

Age 15

Robert Morrison, an English missionary, arrived in China during 1807 and opened the doors for a long protestant engagement. The first several decades of missionary work involved very few missionaries in small, limited areas. After the Second Opium War in 1860, the entire country opened up to missionaries. Over the next several decades, thousands of men, women, and children would eventually come to China to live, work, and participate in missionary activity. Activity peaked in 1920s, and faced a sharp decline due to civil unrest and war consequences. The Chinese government would expel all Protestant missionaries by 1953.
1839 · First Opium War

Age 47

The First Opium War, or the Anglo-Chinese War, was a series of military conflicts between China and the United Kingdom. The conflict was caused by disputes over trading, diplomatic relationships, and other conflicts. The war ended with the Treaty of Nanking, referred to by the Chinese as the "unequal treaties"; China was forced to cede the Hong Kong Island to the British Empire, and Britain was granted extraterritoriality, indemnity, and five new treaty ports for foreign merchants.
