The Fall of China U.S. History

Does it still affect us today?

On October 1, 1949, the People's Republic of China was formally established, with its national capital at Beijing.

Yes, China is still a Communist country, but it is a very capitalist driven economy.The U.S. did not start trading with the Chinese until the late 70s early 80s, which had better diplomacy and China was formally recognized as a country. From then our interactions with china have only increased over the years. China is U.S.'s fourth largest trading partner.We rely heavily on China for products.

This is a young Moao Zedong. He said, "Revolution is not a dinner party."He was fighting for communism;he was the opposing side in China's civil war. After many years of fighting, he won China's civil war.

What Happened

The Fall of China

China was controled by a Nationalistic governement headed by Chiang Kai-shek.Civil War in China: -Chiang Kai-shek and Nationalism-Mao Zedong and CommunismThe U.S. backed up Chian Kai-shek with money and a few military weapons to fight against Mao Zedong, but it was not enough to defeat Mao Zedong.Zedong's forces took over mainland China in 1949.Chiang Kai-shek and his supporters flead to TaiwanThe U.S. did not recognize China as a country, they only recognized Taiwan as a country.China's fall to Communism was a loss in the eyes of the U.S. China's fall meant over a quater of the world's population was under Communist control.Because the U.S. supported Chiang Kai-shek, the new government (People's Republic of China) could not look favorably upon the U.S.It wasn't until 1979, when Carter was president, that the U.S. fomrally acknowledged China as a country.

The U.S. was extremely anti-communism as seen by this image. It's not just the government's job to contain communism, but also the people.
