Not many schools teach about this subject, they might mention it in some kind of timeline but I had to make a presentation for college in order to get a good grade and I made it about the Boxer Rebellion. Teacher was pleased and I got an A+. It was a long yet interesting presentation but I'm gonna narrow it down. Enjoy!
5 Most Pointless Wars for more info about them, China had been humiliated by the Treaty of Tianjing and by the loss of the Second Opium War. Christianity and foreign powers had taken control of China so a new movement called "Righteous Harmony Society", or Boxers, rose against foreigners in order to take their land back and expel them. It was a nationalist movement in which every class participated, even the Chinese government, to eradicate foreigners.
