Commemorating the Long March
A visitor at a painting and calligraphy exhibition commemorating the Long March. October 22 marked the 80th anniversary of the end of the Long March, and China hopes to pass on the epic expedition’s legacy across generations through various commemorative activities across the country.
Eighty years ago, the Chinese Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army arrived at their destination in northern Shaanxi Province after a journey of 12,500 kilometers. The military maneuver organized by the army under the CPC from October 1934 to October 1936 would come to be known as the Long March. As China commemorates the 80th anniversary of the victory of the Long March, the epic trek still resonates with ordinary Chinese people, who acknowledge the CPC’S efforts, determination and sacrifices during an era of intense hardship.
