Why did the San Francisco support its own soldiers in the early Qing Dynasty
Each of the San Francisco feudal lords has a strong army, and has a long history of data and provinces. The Pingnan and Jingnan feudal vassals each have fifteen troops, the green camp has six or seven thousand, and each has 20,000; the Pingxi king belongs to 53 troops, the green camp has 12,000, and each has tens of thousands. Wu Sangui is a high-powered man, and most of the fine soldiers and generals of the Quartet belong to his subordinates.
The Qing government also promoted its general Wang Fuchen as the admiral of Shaanxi, Li Benshen as the admiral of Guizhou, Wu Zhimao as the general soldier of Sichuan, and ten soldiers including Ma Bao, Wang Pingfan, and Wang Xu as the general soldier of Yunnan. The power of San Francisco is almost half of the country.
In the early days of Wu Sangui, Yungui was town, and the Qing court allowed to do things cheaply. Yun and Gui governors were all controlled by him, and the officials who conferred civil and military services were removed. At that time, there was a saying that “the officials elected from the West are all over the world”. In the 17th year of Shunzhi, Yunnan Province had a salary of more than 9 million yuan, which would cost more than 20 million yuan per year after the Guangdong-Fujian feudal vassal was added.
The neighboring provinces made up for the lack of defeat, so they were supplied to the south of the Yangtze River, which caused the Qing Dynasty’s wealth to be half spent in San Francisco. Wu Sangui relied on his own power, benefited from arrogance and indulged himself. He set up the old palace of King Gui Wang Wuhuashan as a vassal mansion and increased luxury. According to the seven hundred hectares of the Mu’s old village of the King of the Kingdom of Guizhou in the Ming Dynasty, he was encircled and occupied the private land.
“Lunner rent”, and “Le civilians as Yu Ding”, “If you fail to comply, you will falsely accuse you of a fugitive.” He also borrowed from Shuhe to repair the city, expedition to the city, quarantined salt wells, opened mines, and monopolized the profits. The money was sometimes called “Western Money”. Wu Sangui has ruled Yunnan for more than ten years, “training soldiers and horses in Japan, making use of equipment”, and secretly stored forbidden objects such as sulphur and sulphur.
Through the Dalai Lama, exchange tea horses, Mongolian horses from Tibet to Yunnan thousands of horses every year. He is scattered all over the private water and land hubs, and there are many confidants in all provinces and towns. His subordinates Li Zicheng and Zhang Xianzhong were brave and good at fighting. His son, Wu Yingxiong, is a messenger, and he can report secretly every day and night. As a result, Wu Sangui felt that his roots were inextricably entrenched and that the court would not take away Yungui from him after all.
After Geng Jingzhong attacked the king, he even ordered his subordinates to seize the business of agriculture and commerce, “to collect taxes in Fujian”, even if his subordinates “exerted the servants and extorted silver rice.” They also gathered the Xiaoxiao disciples. Because of the rumor that “the emperor’s clone is Huoer”, Zhenwei presumably called “The one with the fire, Geng Ye. There is a reason for the world, according to the Eight Mins to enterprising, you can get aspirations.”
Shang Kexi ordered his subordinates to privately act as salt merchants in Guangdong and privately levied taxes. Guangzhou is a foreign trade port, and “gets no less than millions of silver every year.” Shang Kexi is relatively loyal to the Qing court, but he is old and sick, and trusts his sons in military affairs. Shang Zhi believes that the primordial nature is unruly, the rampant is increasing, the treacherous is recruited, the minions are used, the profit is reckless, and the officials and the people resent. He is also drunk and bloodthirsty. He often sticks to his father, and his actions are becoming increasingly lawless. At this point, the three feudal lords have each ruled one side, exchanged their voices, and spread their party members, which has actually become a separate power.
