Over half the river fleet in Hubei, China, have been demolished.
The suspected attackers are the British and the Americans. The Grand Council of the Qing Dynasty believes that the British attacked their fleet to take over and colonize China. The attacks were highly coordinated.
The Emperor arrived at the Grand Council and immediately disseminated the information. “We must retaliate against this threat!” said Yang Xiuqing, an intellectual in the Grand Council.
“Our river fleet in Hubei has been absolutely demolished” stated the Emperor. “Over 50 percent of our ships are gone”, he continued.
The identity of the attackers is yet to be confirmed.
