Xunzhou, Taiping Country Base.
Compared to the other peasant uprisings, talents filled the movement that Hong Xiuquan led in Taiping Country. At the start of the uprising, there were Yang Xiuqing, Feng Yunshan, Xiao Chaogui, Feng Changhui, and Shi Dakai—these five core members. Out of the five, Shi Dakai was really good at war and a much-needed general.
The five of them had met their ends in similar manners.
Feng Yunshan and Xiao Chaogui died in battle at the start of the uprising. During the middle portion, Yang Xiuqing grew arrogant from his victories and Feng Changhui murdered him. Not long after, Hong Xiuquan executed Feng Changhui.
The only lucky survivor, Shi Dakai, left because of Hong Xiuquan's jealousy toward him. Shi Dakai brought away his forces and fought independently. But due to his distance from the base, he couldn't escaped death.
