BAC GIANG  (VNS) — An exhibition to commemorate and celebrate the 130th anniversary of Yen The's Insurrection (1884-2014) was opened on Thursday at the Bac Giang Province's Museum.

The exhibition has on display 50 photos and 70 objects along with many valuable documents related to the insurrection, such as guns, swords, knifes, and pots. Also on display are the clothes related to the insurrection.

The exhibition aims to help people gain a deep insight into the unyielding and heroic spirit of the Vietnamese soldiers in the Yen The Insurrection, as well as instil and strengthen a sense of patriotism and pride in the younger generation for the national historical traditions.

The Yen The Insurrection started on March 16, 1884, in Bac Giang and then spread to the neighbouring provinces of Bac Ninh, Vinh Phuc, Thai Nguyen, and Lang Son. It was first led by Luong Van Nam and later by Hoang Hoa Tham. The insurrection continued for almost 30 years amid hardships and deaths. It is considered as one of the biggest, most enduring, and glorious armed insurrections in the history of Viet Nam. . — VNS
