Chapter 1089 – Home in Danger
The sudden loss of Shanhai Pass was a huge hit to the face for the Qing Dynasty.
"How did this happen?"
They had just endured the pain and gave up on the territory in the north. Now, they had lost their only way toward their old land.

Hence, the fall of Shanhai Pass had a huge psychological impact on the Qing Dynasty.
