Martyrs' Shrine

Martyrs' Shrine, Taipei was built in honor of about 330,000 men who had sacrificed their lives while trying to overthrow the Ching Dynasty.

  10. They put on a great display of changing the guards. That was an enormous number of people to die in the battle.

  11. 330,000men was a huge number. Saw one article about a war where the chief had to report how many were killed at the end of each day. But on that day there was no casualty he wrote on the board "O.K." ie "zero killed". How true? May they RIP. tQ
