  China - The River Provinces
Hupeh and Hunan, Kiangsi and Anhwei occupy the lower reach; Szechuen, Kweichau, and Yunnan, the upper one.
Hupeh signifies " north of the lake " ; Hunan, " south of the lake "—the great lake of Tungting lying between the two.
Hupeh has been open to trade and residence for over forty years; but the sister province was long hermetically sealed against the footprints of the white man. Twenty or even ten years ago to venture within its limits would have cost a European his life.

 THE METASEQUOIA FLORA AND ITS PHYTOGEOGRAPHIC SIGNIFICANCE
In addition to the seed, five shipments of herbarium specimens collected in southwestern Hupeh Province between 1946 and 1948 were received at the Arnold Arboretum by the late Professor Elmer D. Merrill.
However, to improve wartime communications between the provincial capital of Hupeh at En-shih and the national capital at Chungking, a motor road was constructed in early 1939.
The outstanding contribution of this expedition was neither the amount of seed nor the number of herbarium specimens collected, but the discovery of the location of an actively reproducing population of metasequoia at Shui-sa-pa in Hupeh Province.

Our troops in the Liberated Areas in Honan and Hupeh Provinces are now completely encircled by more than twenty Kuomintang divisions from the 1st, 5th and 6th War Zones, with Liu Chih as field commander in charge of the "suppression of Communists".
The people's army of the Liberated Areas in Honan and Hupeh put up a stubborn fight against the invaders, conserved its strength and moved in late October 1945 to an area on the Honan-Hupeh border in the Tahung and the Tungpai Mountains and around Tsaoyang.
The army later shifted to Hsuanhuatien, east of the Peiping-Hankow Railway, because the Kuomintang continued to pursue and attack.

 WHY IS IT THAT RED POLITICAL POWER CAN EXISTIN CHINA?
In many parts of these provinces trade unions and peasant associations were formed on a wide scale, and many economic and political struggles were waged by the working class and the peasantry against the landlord class and the bourgeoisie.
This is why the people held political power for three days in the city of Canton and why independent regimes of peasants emerged in Haifeng and Lufeng, in eastern and southern Hunan, in the Hunan-Kiangsi border area and in Huangan, Hupeh Province.
The situation arising from this defeat was salvaged as a result of the corrective measures taken by the Special Committee and the Army Committee of the Party after September.
