  Located in the hinterland of the Dabie Mountains, Xinxian County of Henan is known as the "Red Capital, Hometown of Generals, and Jiangnan with Poems and Paintings".

  "Every family has the Red Army, each household has martyrs, the mountains are buried with loyal bones, and the mountains have monuments."

In this red hot land, more than 40 generals from the new county were raised successively, and more than half of them were sacrificed in the new county with a population of less than 100,000 during the Revolutionary War.

  "Red Land" has many red stories

  In 1926, revolutionary martyr Wu Huanxian joined 7 activists and intellectual youths in the peasant movement in the Jianchanghe area of ​​Xinxian County to establish the first party group.

In February of the following year, the party group absorbed a group of advanced elements and established the first rural party branch in the central area of ​​the border between Hubei and Henan. Wu Huan was the first branch secretary.

  Since then, this small county town in the Dabie Mountains has gradually been branded with red marks: the Capital Revolution Museum of the Hubei, Henan and Anhui Soviet Areas, the Revolutionary Martyrs Cemetery of the Hubei, Henan and Anhui Soviet Areas, the Memorial Hall of General Xu Shiyou, and the Former Residence of Wu Huanxian...

  In the county seat of Xinxian County, the Capital Revolution Museum and the Revolutionary Martyrs Cemetery are across the river. The statue of "Red Flag Fluttering" on the lush Hero Mountain next to it tells countless visitors that this is a red land.

  Entering the museum, the "Lenin" aircraft, the skimming used by the Red Twenty-Five Army, the copper kettle used by the martyr Liu Mingbang... more than a thousand red cultural relics tell people the "Dabie Mountain Spirit".

Among them, the "draft of land decrees" on an old wall attracts particular attention, which is a historical testimony to the land revolution in the Hubei, Henan and Anhui revolutionary base areas.

  Instructor Han Lan introduced that in the war years, farmers used mud and straw to cover this wall with "Law of Land" many times before it was preserved.

Today, this wall has become a national first-class cultural relic, and it is the "treasure of the town hall" of the Revolutionary Museum in the capital of the Hubei, Henan, Anhui and Soviet regions.

  In fact, the Capital Revolution Museum of the Hubei, Henan, Anhui and Soviet Areas is only a microcosm of the red tourism in Xinxian County.

In recent years, the "red land" of Xinxian County has become popular. As red tourism has become popular, these resource endowments have become prominent and they have begun to feed back the masses of the old revolutionary base.

Han Lan said, “If there are more tourists, the economy of the old district will improve.”
