While researching Chinese Boxer Rebellion uniforms I found this really good read. A really fascinating conflict I knew little/nothing about.  https://warfarehistorynetwork.com/2016/05/02/under-8-flags-the-boxer-rebellions-unlikely-alliance/

Sure would be cool to have a Jingal gun to shoot Mr. Prop Man Sir!

I read the article and it is quite interesting.  People know very little about the Boxer Rebellion other than what they see in the movie.  I had tried to found out something about it, but only have been able to locate bits and pieces.
