Zuo Zongtang, a powerful official of the late Qing Dynasty, led 60,000 Huxiang children to advance westward to recover Xinjiang.When he was governor of Shaanxi and Gansu, he ordered his troops to plant 260,000 willow trees along the 600-plus miles of the Hexi Corridor. Since the local soil was mainly gravel and sand in the Gobi desert, planting trees could consolidate the roadbed, prevent wind and fix sand, and also give pedestrians shade.It is also said that Zuo zongtang’s army came from the south, and the willows grown in the south just sooth the homesickness of the soldiers, so people called them “Zuo Gongliu”.Zuo zongtang led the real record of afforestation along the road, also become a good historical model of greening border area.Wall of Jiayuguan Pass.(Photo/reporter Ren Yifang photo) ▲ Jiayuguan “Dingcheng brick” legend as long as the move, the city destroyed building collapse.Photograph (figure/reporter ren to fang) reveal “ChengZhuan” 600, no one dared to touch to jiayuguan passengers must have heard of “ChengZhuan”, put a brick in the wall, legend has it that nobody dare to touch it for more than 600 years, the locals believe that if you move the meeting collapse incidents, the legend had to back to da Ming hongzhi and zhengde years more than 600 years ago.Jiayuguan commentator introduced, “in order to resist the border enemy must build the wall, as the supervisor of the general Li Duancheng and the school lieutenant Hao Kong, two people invited nearby city skilled craftsmen.”Yi Kaizhan, a so-called “master builder”, carefully calculated that it would take 999,900 bricks to build jiayuguan.Seeing such a confident yi Kaizhan, Hao Kong gave rise to doubts and arrogance. He did not believe that anyone could calculate so accurately, and even threatened to punish the workers who committed crimes if there was one more brick.Sure enough, the brick building the wall is easy to open accounted for the number of hao Kong deliberately put a brick before the acceptance.Heart know by the whole easy to open accounted deliberately said, “this is a piece of dingcheng brick, it is in, the wall can be safe”, then the guilty Hao Kong no longer pursue, “Dingcheng brick” has become one of jiayuguan legends.Decryption of the construction of jiayuguan hidden many organs, “East Sen New media ETtoday” reporters found jiayuguan inside the wall there are many “closed” wall eyes, the original is used to place a candle, on the one hand do not let the enemy see the fire calculated manpower, while avoiding being blown out by the desert wind.The whole row of sloping wall holes below the wall has the characteristics of defense and attack.
