  The old revolutionary base in Dabie Mountain is a monument in the history of the party in a century.

During the Revolutionary War, more than 2 million people in the Dabie Mountains joined the revolution, and nearly 1 million died for the country. It can be said that "every family has a Red Army, every household has martyrs, the mountains and mountains are buried with loyal bones, and the mountains and mountains are monuments."

  Xinxian, located at the northern foot of the Dabie Mountains, is the capital of the Hubei, Henan, Anhui, and Soviet regions.

The Hubei, Henan, Anhui and Soviet Areas were one of the base areas created by the Communist Party of China during the Agrarian Revolutionary War. At its peak, it had 45,000 main Red Army forces and a base population of 3.5 million. It was the second largest revolutionary base area after the Central Soviet Area. The miracle that the red flag will not fall in the year.

  During the War of Liberation, Xinxian was the base for Liu and Deng's army to advance to Dabie Mountain for thousands of miles.

In 1947, Liu Deng's army went south and set up a temporary command post in Tianpu Dayuan, Xin County, and won the battle of Hanjiazhai.

Tianpu Dayuanhou Mountain still retains the battle site of that year.

  The land in Xinxian County is red, but the environment here is green.

  In Xinxian County, there are more than 20 unique ancient villages like Tianpu Daluo, as well as countless ancient trees, ancient houses, ancient granaries, and ancient workshops.

Beautiful natural landscapes such as peaks, bays and lakes form a natural green ecological barrier here.
