Farmer upris­ing re­mem­bered

against the French, con­trolled lo­cal traf­fic routes, de­stroyed many ve­hi­cles and

heavy to the en­emy.

By the end of 1886, French au­thor­i­ties sent thou­sands of sol­diers with heavy weapons to at­tack the Ba Ñình base. De­spite be­ing out­gunned, the in­sur­gents fought bravely for 32 days and nights.

The Ba Ñình Upris­ing is a his­tor­i­cal sym­bol in the coun­try’s his­tory, rep­re­sent­ing the pa­tri­o­tism of Viet­namese in­sur­gents in the Nga Sôn re­gion at that time.

Ac­cord­ing to his­tor­i­cal doc­u­ments, in the mid­dle of 1945 the then Haø Noäi’s Mayor, Dr Traàn Vaên Lai, re­named Pug­inier Square (name of a French priest) near the for­mer French Gov­er­nor Palace as Ba Ñình Square.

A few months later, after the suc­cess of the Au­gust 18 Rev­o­lu­tion, Ba Ñình Square be­came an im­por­tant in his­tory, where Pres­i­dent Hoà Chí Minh read the Dec­la­ra­tion of In­de­pen­dence on Septem­ber 2, an­nounc­ing the birth of the Demo­cratic Repub­lic of Vi­etä Nam.

More than 130 years have passed since poor farm­ers

to fight for the home­land’s in­de­pen­dence. Present Ba Ñình Com­mune has been with big­ger houses and good fa­cil­i­ties.

What’s left of the old Ba Ñình Base, a na­tional his­tor­i­cal site, is a stone in the Ba Ñình Ju­nior High School.

Lo­cal au­thor­i­ties have drafted a plan to relic site.

I think Ba Ñình a

relic site to record the his­toric event with great value. A small part of the to­tal amount ap­proved for a cer­e­mony to cel­e­brate the birth of Thanh Hoùa Prov­ince, ex­pected to reach VNÑ104 bil­lion (US$4.5 mil­lion), should be used to

the Ba Ñình his­tor­i­cal
