Dr. Huping Ling, Faculty Mentor

The 1911 revolution ended the ruling of emperor in China and opened a new page in Chinese history. The feudal system was abolished and a modern, democratic system was established. During this period, the oversea Chinese community in America played an important role. For example, Xinzhonghui(Revive China Society) was founded by Sun Yat-sen in 1894 for fund raising purpose. Zhigong Tang was founded in 1848 in China to overthrow Qing Dynasty and became the major secret society of Chinese community in U.S. In the beginning of 20th century, it is reformed by Sun Yat-sen and serves as major force in 1911 Xinhai revolution. The paper would focus on the cultural, political and economical effects brought by Chinese secret society Tang in U.S.
