Photo taken on June 29, 2019 shows exhibits inside the Sanguantang building complex which once served as the Red Army's command center during the 1934 Battle of Xiangjiang in Jieshou Town of Xing'an County, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The Battle of Xiangjiang in late 1934 is deemed by history experts as pivotal to a successful Long March of the Red Army led by the Communist Party of China (CPC) between 1934 and 1936. During the battle, the Red Army lost almost two thirds of its troops when crossing the Xiangjiang River from ferry points scattered in today's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, but managed to break through a military blockade line by the rival. By noon time on December 1, 1934, the main forces of the Red Army had all crossed the Xiangjiang River and the historic Long March was thus carried on. (Xinhua/Wang Siwei)
