When Li Xingyu was appointed as the governor of the two rivers, he was affected by the first Opium War. After Li Xingyu took office, he reorganized the Navy, built ships, cleared the bandits, and quickly restored the Jiangnan area to its normal state. The Emperor Daoguang was very happy and regarded Li Xingwei as a barrier to the south of the Yangtze River.
The name of Zuo Zongtang, almost no one knows, no one knows.
Zuo Zongtang was born in 1812 in Zuojiatun, Xiangyin County, Hunan Province. Zuo Zongtang, like Li Xingyu, emerged at a very young age and was known in the countryside for his sexual insights. However, Zuo Zongtang’s road to imperial examinations is very rough. After he took the test, he went to Beijing three times in a row to participate in the test.
When Zuo Zongtang was 20 years old, he left Xiangyin County and went to Xiangtan County to make a door-to-door son-in-law. Since then, Zuo Zongtang has lived in Gui Zaitang for 13 years. It was not until 1847 that Zuo Zongtang used his savings from years of teaching to return to Liujiachong, Xiangyin County, and built a brick-and-wood house covering 4.29 acres with 48 houses, namely Liuzhuang. Zuo Zongtang's family lived in Liuzhuang for many years. Until 1852, Zuo Zongxi came out at the invitation of Hunan Governor Zhang Liangji and went to defend the Qing rulers' camp.
Zuo Zongtang’s identity as a person, the official to the Dongge University, the military minister, the governor of the two rivers, is also a miracle.
Guo Wei, born in 1818, was born in the west of Xiangyin County, Hunan Province.
After Guo Xiu was a scholar, he once entered the famous Yuelu Academy. At Yuelu Academy, Guo Wei met with Zeng Guofan and Liu Rong and became friends of like-mindedness.
Guo Song’s road to imperial examination is as full of hardship as Zuo Zongtang. Zuo Zongtang participated in three trials. Guo Wei participated in five trials and went to the last time to take the exam.
