The first time I came to Kunming, only half a day, I rode a yellow car to visit the Yunnan Army Lecture Hall. This modern military academy in China has a small area. It can be done in more than half an hour on the Internet, but I spent nearly two hours playing and browsing. The ginger gate building is very conspicuous. It has the implication of the combination of Chinese and Western military thoughts, and it can absorb all kinds of Western and Eastern military thoughts. The theme exhibition is divided into three parts. It introduces in detail many important histories in the modern and contemporary history of Lecture Wutang and China. It also introduces for the first time the life stories of more than 300 generals who came out of Lecture Wutang. The Pavilion also uses a lot of modern technology to show the history, which is still very shocking and very visible. Lecture Wutang is next to Cuihu Park and Yunnan University. You can stroll around the scenery in your spare time and feel the atmosphere of the University campus.
Yunnan Army Lecture Wutang Site is located in the West Chenghua Nursery of Cuihu Lake, Kunming City, founded in 1909. Yunnan Army Lecture Wutang is a famous military academy in the modern history of China. It was originally a military academy set up by the Qing Dynasty to train the new army and strengthen the frontier defense. It is also known as the Beiyang Wutang (Tianjin) in 1906 and the Northeast Wutang (Fengtian) in 1908. Yunnan Lecturing Wutang (later renamed Yunnan Army Lecturing Wutang School) has run 22 periods from 1909 to 1935. Most of the instructors are sergeants studying in Japan. Adhering to the school motto of "perseverance and hard work", the school has become one of the earliest military officer training schools in China. Each period lasts from one and a half to two years, consisting of four arms, namely, step by step, riding, artillery and engineering. Among the graduates, some later became outstanding revolutionary generals, such as Zhu De and Ye Jianying (Ye Shuai graduated with the only "best class" student in the school, see the picture "diploma"). Phase 15 also recruits returned overseas Chinese and students from Korea, Vietnam and other countries. In 1924, Yunnan Army Martial Arts School delivered nearly 60 (%) of its teachers to the Whampoa Military Academy opened by the National Revolutionary Army in Guangzhou. In 1935, Yunnan Army Martial Arts School was adapted as "Kunming Branch of the Central Military Officer School" by Longyun and Director. After the end of the War of Resistance Against Japan, in September 1945, the fifth branch was suspended. Yunnan Army Wutang and Wushu School run 22 sessions, including various training teams and classes, and trained officers of all kinds, with about 9000 sergeants. Later, he became a marshal with more than 300 generals, many of whom were overthrowing the monarchy, the Northern Expedition, the War of Resistance Against Japan and the founding fathers and heroes established for New China. It can be called "Centennial Military Academy, cradle of generals". Today, the main building of Lecture Wutang is a two-storey brick-wood structure with a walking horse turning tower. The east, south, West and North four floors are symmetrically connected, forming a square courtyard with an area of about 144,000 square meters. The East and West buildings are about 119 meters in length and 10 meters in width; the South and North buildings are about 116 meters in length and 7 meters in width and 12 meters in height; and the reading and drilling building in the middle of the south building is about 115 meters in height and 13 meters in width, with a large scale.
The cradle of the commander-in-chief, a place full of historical records, there are free commentaries. The commentator is a volunteer college student. He has persisted for three years. The life and appearance he tells and the heroic stories of revolutionary fighters make me feel sour at one time. It shows the strength of the commentator. The Pavilion is designed around the second floor of the teaching building. There are historical stories, scenes of students'learning and life, and many photos and cultural relics, such as textbooks and medals for merit. This military academy is really good. It has trained so many generals, including foreign militarists. There is also free drinking water in the scenic spots. Generally speaking, it is a very good Red Revolutionary Education Base.

In order to train the new army to consolidate its rule, the Qing Dynasty eventually became the power to overthrow its own regime.

Look at the martyrs'homework handwriting in that year to see how excellent they are!
I don't know why I like this place very much. I came here specially, but unfortunately, it was closed on Monday, but I just couldn't visit the exhibition. It was still accessible. I could see the training place of wartime soldiers at close range and feel its solemnity and mystery. Maybe because of the closure, it was quite different from the noise around me. Maybe the martial arts hall was the answer. This atmosphere, we all intentionally or unintentionally maintain this solemnity, but also have such tacit understanding, looking at some of the furnishings inside, or can imagine the hard training of soldiers at that time, Zhu De, Ye Jianying and other revolutionary predecessors have studied here. Because of the travel problem, I did not go any more. If I had the chance to go to Kunming, I would definitely come here. Of course, I remember missing Monday, otherwise I would not be able to visit the museum.
Friends who like Chinese modern history should not miss this place when they come to Kunming. Yunnan Army Wutang is a famous military academy in modern Chinese history. After the 1911 Revolution, General Cai E, the governor of Yunnan, ordered that Yunnan Army Wutang be changed into Yunnan Army Wutang School. The Dian Army, which was formed by the teachers and students of Yunnan Xiuwutang, has made brilliant achievements in the war of protecting the country and France. Therefore, the school has a growing reputation and is well-known. Two marshals and more than twenty generals came out of the Yunnan Lecture Hall, which Zhu De called the melting pot of the Chinese revolution.
Yunnan Army Lecture Wutang is a scenic spot with historical and cultural charm, which records the various histories of Yunnan Province and the past dynasties. The Army Lecture Wutang is on the edge of Cuihu Lake, next to the Yunnan Provincial Library, and its location is very easy to find. The venue is free to visit throughout the year. The time of visit is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The whole lecture hall takes about one to two hours to visit. The exhibition hall of the Chinese Expeditionary Army was very shocked, most of which restored the details of the expedition at that time; it was well worth visiting.
Under the background of training recruits in the late Qing Dynasty, Yunnan Army Military Academy was established in 1899, which became the predecessor of Yunnan Army Military Academy. In September 1909, Yunnan Army Academy of Military Academy was officially founded and opened. A year later, in order to stimulate the 1911 Revolution, the rebels, with the students of the lecture hall as the backbone, launched attacks on the governor's office and other key places. The rebels occupied Kunming, that is, the provincial and national capital of the Chinese Army was established. The success of the 1911 Yunnan Uprising overthrew the rule of the Qing Dynasty in Yunnan, supported the Wuchang Uprising and promoted the victory of the 1911 Revolution nationwide. In the history of Yunnan Army Wutang, a large number of patriotic military generals, such as Zhu De and Ye Jianying, were trained. During the Protecting the Nation Movement, the War of Resistance Against Japan and the War of Liberation, a large number of Wutang teachers and students died for their country and sacrificed their lives to become benevolent, which exerted a great influence in modern history. On the basis of the original main building, the old site of Yunnan Army Lecture Wutang has opened up a patriotic education base. It shows people the history of the development of the Army Lecture Wutang in the form of pictures, texts and video materials, as well as their contributions to the Chinese revolution and construction. In this visit, I undoubtedly attended a patriotic education course and a Chinese history course. On the day I visited, there happened to be a volunteer who specializes in the army lecture hall as a lecturer. She won the praise and applause of the visitors with her rich historical knowledge and well-known explanations, which must be said to be our lucky!
Tour Cuihu Park and Yunnan University to come here, is a free attraction. Speaking Wutang is one of the three major military academies in modern China, where many famous generals have studied. Now it is a patriotic education base, exhibiting a lot of cultural relics and materials, more text, like the history of people can slowly look at it for a day.
