The Long March was a strategic operation undertaken between 1934-36 by China's Red Army when being pursued by hordes of Kuomintang troops, moving its headquarters and forces along the Yangtze River to Shaanxi-Gansu Revolutionary Base.

On Oct. 10, 1934, around 86,000 troops, led by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), left Ruijin and Gucheng in Jiangxi Province on the Long March. On Oct. 22, 1936 the Fourth, Second and First Front Armies finally joined forces at Jiangtaibao in Jingning County of Gansu Province. This was the end of the Long March.
