Qi Jiguang and Huang Yaguan

In the front of Taipingzhai Yucheng Square in Huangyaguan Great Wall Scenic Area, there is a granite statue with a height of 8.5 meters. It is full of armor and majestic. It overlooks the mountains. This statue is the Ming Dynasty to fight against the disabled forces, the town of Zhenshou, the Great Wall, and Megatron. The national hero of the 16th year of Bianzhai, Ji Jiguang.

Qi Jiguang (1528 ~ 1587), a famous anti-tiger in the Ming Dynasty, a famous military strategist. Character Yuan, No. Nantang, Shandong Dengzhou (now Shandong Penglai) people. When he was 17 years old, his father died of illness. He inherited his father's position and was the commander of Shandong Dengzhouwei.

In the second year of Longqing (1568), after quelling the chaos of the southeastern coast, the general manager of the Liao Baoding, Tan Lun, recommended that the court appointed Qi Jiguang as the general soldier of the town, the township in the east, the mountain customs in the east, and the Juyongguan area in the west. Qi Jiguang was appointed as the general soldier of the town, and it was the time when the town’s border affairs were seriously chaotic and the remnants of the cavalry frequently harassed. The most urgent task at that time was to establish a brave and good army as soon as possible to curb the arrogance of the remnant forces. In order to prevent the invasion of the remnants of the North, the Emperor Longqing slammed the book, mobilized 30,000 infantry, and collected 3,000 Zhe soldiers. He Jiguang was specially trained to build a brave and good army.

Qi Jiguang summed up the experience of training soldiers in Zhejiang Province and formulated training contents such as practicing daring, practicing ear and eye, practicing hand and foot, and practicing camp. Before training, he first focused on selecting soldiers to ensure the quality of the military. He trained the soldiers to enlighten and apply. On the one hand, he hated the chief's deduction of military food and told the soldiers that "the food of the people should be used to defend the people to kill the enemy", so that the soldiers can understand the purpose of the war. In the training, Qi Jiguang took the lead and often demonstrated swords and guns in front of the soldiers and climbed the cliff. On the other hand, he implements a clear system of rewards and punishments, which stipulates that those who have outstanding skills in training can receive brocade and silver money. Those who have lower grades, even those who are officers, must be punished by bindings and participation in the military. Those who insist on buying and selling, fighting and fighting, stealing people's pastoral fruits, and committing adultery of women must be severely punished. Even those who are unable to catch up with the team within three miles due to squatting and squatting on the way to the army must be punished by wearing their ears.

In order to get rid of the predicament of the border affairs, the court approved the proposal of “creating a hollow enemy station and planning the preparation of the Great Wall” proposed by Qi Jiguang. In the past three years, more than 1,100 hollow enemy units have been repaired. In the five years of Longqing, the construction of all Great Wall defense facilities within the scope of the defense of the town has been completed. The completion of the hollow enemy platform not only improved the Great Wall defense system, but also accumulated experience for the comprehensive reform of the Great Wall defense system.

The life of Qi Jiguang is as described in his poem "Immediately". "The north and the south drive the newspaper's main feelings, and the river laces the moon." One hundred and sixty-six days a year, most of them are on the Henggema." This poem summarizes His career as a Hummer, he expressed his loyalty to serve the country.
