The service-learning trip to Xinyu wrapped up with some sightseeing — an overnight trip to Jinggang Mountain. Jinggang Mountain is pivotal in the history of the People’s Republic as the bastion for the Chinese Communists in the 1920s when the KMT attacked the CCP to consolidate its power in China; CCP forces retreated to Jinggang Mountain area, re-grouped, and there began the Long March. While we enjoyed the mountain scenery, we also learned by visiting various sites in Jinggang Mountain about the history of the time — and had fun with it by dressing up for photographs. Note the ferocity displayed in the picture above by our history contingent of Prof. Joe Dennis and Megan LeDell, augmented by Owen Xiaogang Hu of Xinyu College. Below is a picture of Libby Hubbard, taken during a hike through some of the scenic spots of this mountainous area.
