The Battle of Yingkou was a battle where Chinese forces battled against the invading Russian army in the Boxer Rebellion.
Battle[edit | edit source]
Unlike the battles in China proper during the Boxer Rebellion, battles between Chinese and foreigners in Manchuria were exclusively between Chinese and Russians. The Russians were the sole force attacking Yingkou, at the time one of the main sea ports of Manchuria.
Yingkou was divided into a foreign settlement and a Chinese city. Mishchenko had to engaged his reserved troops to win the fight. When the Russians seize the city, a number of Boxers and Chinese Imperial troops managed to pull off an evacuation. A moat, precipitation, and mud hampered the movement of Russian troops and their guns.
