Korea's involvement[edit]

What is the Korean Empire's involvement in the Boxer Rebellion? I've read in the list of wars involving North Korea that the Jinwidae, the garrison guards engaged the Boxers raids along the Korean border. Koreanidentity10000 (talk) 21:26, 9 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I cannot find any sources saying Korea fought in the Boxer Rebellion. I found a source that said "The Korean Empire did not get involved in the Boxer Rebellion. At that time, Korea was under pressure from the expanding influence of the Russian Empire” so I don’t know what that is talking about it.

I believe there was a Korean legation in Beijing at the time of the Boxer Rebellion, but not in the foreign embassy quarter that was besieged. Anti-Western Chinese had nothing against Korea, which recognized Imperial China's traditional authority and wished for Chinese support against Japan (though they did not get much after Japan won the First Sino-Japanese War in 1895).

Opium mentioned. Europeans trying to get opium?[edit]

What was opium's role in the Europeans being in China? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:59, 2 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Europeans became involved in the opium trade as an attempt to correct an egregious trade imbalance that they had with China, a massive economy that had little interest in European-made goods. ˜˜˜˜ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dylancomm378 (talkcontribs) 04:09, 23 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Canada's involvement[edit]

Canada provided arms to the British Army during the Boxer Rebellion should they be put with the rest of the British Forces? The article I found said "Some Canadians fought in China and the British commander of the Canadian Militia from 1880-84, Lieutenant-General Richard George Amherst Luard, served there. In 1900 Canada was contracted to supply the British forces quelling the Boxer Rebellion."[1] LuxembourgLover (talk) 19:41, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You're supposed to add what you found to the article body first, before you add something to the infobox. You don't have to make this comment and wait a month either, just add the information to the article body and then the little Canada icon to the infobox.
