The Boxer Rebellion, also known as the Society of the Righteous and Harmonious Fists, did not deserve a bad reputation. The influence and pressure of foreign countries was destroying China and its culture. China was already weakened country since many foreign powers took parts of China like Germany in Shandong and Russia in Manchuria. The more China resisted, the more foreign countries would attack and that would lead to the creation of more peace treaties giving foreign countries even more of an advantage. Most of the peace treaties were in favor of foreign countries so the influence of foreign powers would be increased. The Boxer Rebellion would eventually rise and fight back. In conclusion, the Boxer Rebellion did not deserve a bad reputation because foreigners were affecting China’s culture for the benefit of themselves.
