Editor's note:

  History is the best textbook.

  Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping has visited the Red Holy Land many times to cherish the memory of revolutionary heroes and tell the story of the red.

Let us revisit the party history story told by the general secretary and draw the wisdom and strength of progress from it.

△On May 20, 2019, Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, President of the State, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission came to Yudu County, Ganzhou City, Jiangxi Province, where the Long March of the Central Red Army was assembled, to present a basket of flowers to the Memorial of the Long March Departure of the Central Red Army.

  The Yudu River flows quietly. Next to the ferry where the main force of the Central Red Army set off, a pontoon bridge silently tells the history of blood and fire 87 years ago, preaching the saying "The people in Yudu are really good, and the people in the Soviet area are really close." .

  An old house without door panels on Jianguo Road in Gongjiang Town, Yudu County has now become a popular destination for tourists to experience the Long March.

In the old Hakka house, the "two wells and three halls" are well preserved, but there is no door panel at the entrance.

This is the ancestral home of Liu Guangpei, a descendant of the Red Army.

  "Why don't we have a door in our house?" Liu Guangpei asked when he was a child, and his mother told him: "Your grandfather took down the door to build a bridge for the Red Army."

  In October 1934, the five main corps of the Central Red Army and more than 86,000 people from the Central Committee, the Military Commission and the directly affiliated units gathered on the north bank of the Yudu River.

In the periphery at this time, heavy enemy troops are surrounding, chasing and intercepting, pressing harder at every step.

  The local people took the initiative to send door panels, bed panels, and even life materials. Almost all the wood available at home was used to build pontoon bridges.

Passing 8 main ferry ports and 5 pontoon bridges, the Red Army crossed over the Du River and embarked on a long journey.

  Yu Duhe has since gained the immortal title of "The First Cross of the Long March".
