21 June

On June 21, 1900, China formally declares war on the United States, Britain, Germany, France and Japan, as an edict issued from the Empress Dowager Cixi. During this time, the Boxer Rebellion had been underway, incited by growing resentment against foreign presences in China. Gene Luen Yang uses his dual graphic novels, Boxers and Saints to guide readers through the layered experiences Chinese citizens experienced during this chaotic time.
