The Boxer Rebellion deserves a bad reputation. They killed innocent christian chinese as well as missionaries and many foreigners.  The Boxers killed foreigners and christian chinese because they thought that they caused the flood. When the reinforcement comes, the boxers hid in the crowd and making sure not get found. However, this caused the reinforcements to have no idea who are the Boxers as they wanted revenge therefore executing innocent civilians that looks like the Boxers.
