Led by revolutionary forces affiliated with Sun Yat-sen’s Tongmenghui organization, Wuchang became the epicenter of a coordinated attack on the Qing authorities. The rebels successfully captured key government buildings and military arsenals, sparking massive uprisings across China. The Wuchang Uprising set the stage for events leading to the overthrow of imperial rule and set the stage for political reform in China.
