In search of descendants of General Sun and Hunan Braves

A presentation entitled 台灣淡水在地看 清法戰爭 (a local perspective of the Battle of Fisherman's Wharf) was delivered by EyeDoc on March 2 at Harvard YenChing Library 燕京圖書館 to visiting scholars from China. It is hoped that the descendants from General Sun KaiHua孫開華提督 and/or Hunan Braves湖南勇 could be located, through publicity, so that their valiant efforts in defending Tamsui in the 1884 Sino-French War can be properly and officially honored.

  1. There was one 湖南勇仔, old and blind living in front of our family house in 清水街. Unfortunately he was murdered by his daughter-in-law by driving a 5 inch nail into his head. He might be the very last 湖南勇仔 in 淡水. The incident happened around 1935, I guess.

  2. Hi ChoSan, yes I learned this tale from you a while ago. I was in Tamsui yesterday, went by your old hangout on ChungCheng Road thinking how you were doing. Glad to hear from you again!
