Civilian Response to Taiping Rebellion
Posted 17 December 2010 - 02:53 AM
I have taken out two books from the library on the Taiping Rebellion, but they have proven to be poor sources of information when it comes to low-level granular data like this. In addition, I am a total newbie to history of any sort, so I am unfamiliar with standard procedure in the face of organized uprisings and the like. Long-winded explanations are welcome.

Anti-Taiping: inhabitants above Yangtse, non-Hans, Manchus, gentry, loyal officials/civil servants, landlords, Buddhist/Daoist clergy etc.
Sympathisers: inhabitants of Southeastern provinces, Hakkas, starving and dispossessed Han peasants (the majority!), disgruntled scholars, anti-Manchu 'revolutionaries', Hung's 'Christian' converts etc.
