Wuchang

Wuchang (武昌) is one of the three towns, together with Hankou[?] (汉口) and Hanyang[?] (汉阳), which are included in modern day Wuhan, the capital of the Hubei province, in China.

In Wuchang on October 10, 1911, a revolt broke out against the Qing Dynasty. This event, now called the Wuchang Uprising, led to the development of the Republic of China.
