Today, Xiaobian brings you Liu Zongmin's story. Interested readers can follow Xiaobian to have a look.
When it comes to Liu Zongmin, most people may not have heard of it, but when it comes to it, almost all people have heard of it. In the late Ming and early Qing Dynasty, Wu Sangui had a great influence. At the end of the year, when the world was in turmoil, as the general of the Ming Dynasty, Wu Sangui should have fought for the Ming Dynasty to the end, but Wu Sangui surrendered to the Manchu Dynasty.
In this way, Wu Sangui was controversial in history. People's dispute about Wu Sangui was whether he was a traitor or not. The reason was that during the period of emperor, Wu Sangui had the banner of anti Qing and restoration of Ming Dynasty. In this way, Wu Sangui began to make contributions to the Ming Dynasty. Under such circumstances, is Wu Sangui a traitor?
About this question, I'm afraid that different people have different opinions. Everyone's answer must be different. Who is Liu Zongmin? He is the general in his hand. Liu Zongmin's fate has been changed in the past two years. First of all, Liu Zongmin was born in a poor family. Second, he was forced by the government because he couldn't afford to pay taxes and levies. Liu Zongmin's father hanged himself.
Liu Zongmin, who has no father, lives with his mother, but there is no man in his family. Liu's fate becomes rough. In order to survive, Liu's mother chooses to beg for a living. Because his mother died, Liu Zongmin became an orphan. The experience of suffering made Liu Zongmin hate the government and the powerful.
Later, when he was a little older, Liu Zongmin began to train a lot of iron skills in his youth. A few years later, Liu Zongmin, who was diligent, assiduous and studious, became a famous blacksmith. In this way, Liu Zongmin at least has a way to survive. In 1634, Liu Zongmin defected to Li Zicheng's peasant army. Since then, because of his outstanding achievements in the war, Li Zicheng trusted him very much and entrusted him with important tasks.
Liu Zongmin helped Li Zicheng to win. On March 18, 1644, Li Zicheng's peasant army entered Beijing. After entering the capital, Li Zicheng established. Under such circumstances, Liu Zongmin was named ruhou, whose duty was to command and administer all civil servants. At this time, Liu Zongmin's fate changed fundamentally.
As Li Zicheng established the Dashun regime, Wu's family members have not yet been able to withdraw under such circumstances. Therefore, Liu Zongmin and his soldiers went door-to-door to search the official's court and seized all the money and grain. Liu Zongmin came to Wuxiang's mansion and ordered the soldiers to bring all the members of his family to the courtyard and gather among them.
Chen Yuanyuan's forehead is beautiful, cheeks are plump, bright and gorgeous, detached and refined, just like a beautiful flower. As soon as Chen Yuanyuan appeared, he not only attracted Liu Zongmin's attention, but also took Liu's soul away. Liu Zongmin must have never seen such a beautiful woman. The owner of the family is Wu Xiang, and his son is Wu Sangui.
At this time, Liu Zongmin knew that Chen Yuanyuan was Wu Sangui's concubine. Liu Zongmin takes Chen Yuanyuan directly to his Marquis's mansion and forcibly occupies it for himself. Wu Sangui was very angry when he knew about it. Later, the battle of Shanhaiguan broke out. Li Zicheng, with more than 100000 troops, went to fight for Wu Sangui himself. Liu Zongmin also had to follow Li Zicheng and lead the troops to fight together.
The result of the battle of Shanhaiguan was Li Zicheng's failure, and Li Zicheng finally withdrew from the capital. Liu Zongmin led the army to flee from Beijing in a hurry. All the plundered ordnance, food, bedding and other materials were abandoned. Even Liu Zongmin's concubine and daughter were abandoned. Liu Zongmin's army moved around after leaving Beijing. When passing through Henan, there was a change within the rebel army.
In September 1645, Liu Zongmin led the insurgents to withdraw from Jiugong Mountain. During the evacuation, the enemy was ambushed. Liu Zongmin was captured and killed by the enemy. Liu was only 38 when he died. At that time, Liu Zongmin became the general who was defeated and killed. Because of this, Liu Zongmin's ending is not.
