Digest "the Great Wall" is a word, beginning in the Warring States period literature. Today the word "the Great Wall" has two meanings: the the Great Wall is generalized to all giant military engineering system in ancient Chinese; narrow sense refers in particular to the Great Wall, nomadic northern defense Chinese south of the Great Wall. In the history of our country, from the Warring States period to the Ming Dynasty the vassal states so far, a total of more than 20 states and Dynasty had built the Great Wall, which lasted for more than 2700 years. In 16 provinces and autonomous regions in the northeast, north, northwest, Central Plains, there are ruins of the Great Wall, one is the territory of Inner Mongolia the Great Wall 15000 km. If each area all repair the Great Wall together, a total length of more than 50000 kilometers. The Great Wall is a huge project, incomparable, really is "within two thousand years, and in one hundred thousand". Spring and autumn and the Warring States period, wars, smoke. Many states have demarcation points Jiang Shou, in order to defend their homeland security, and some to the embankment to prevent, some obstacles along the mountain wall, built the the Great Wall to self-defense. The oldest the Great Wall appeared in the state of Chu in the spring and autumn period. Tongyiliuguo Qin Shihuang, sent General Meng Tian northern Huns, Yan, Zhao, Qin's the Great Wall connected, and upgrading and expansion. The Qin the Great Wall west of Lintao, east of Liaodong, stretching thousands of miles, Chinese history is the first real sense of "the Great Wall". In 206 BC, the Han Emperor Liu Bang proclaims oneself emperor, the establishment of the Han dynasty. In order to prevent the Huns made, the large-scale construction of the Great Wall. In addition to repair the Qin the Great Wall outside, also built the Great Wall, especially the large-scale construction of west the Great Wall is today's Gansu Jiuquan, Yumen to Xinjiang Lop Nor line. All told, the Han Dynasty from the west northwest of the Great Wall to the northeast of the Liaodong the Great Wall, the length of more than 0.5 kilometers. If coupled with the Xinjiang Lop Nor, Kuche forefront pavilions, Inner Mongolia in the vicinity of LEH, city barrier column kiosks, length up to 1 thousands of meters, far more than the Qin dynasty. Therefore, we say, the Han Dynasty is a dynasty built the Great Wall China history the longest. The southern and Northern Dynasties to the Liao Jin Yuan period, the construction of the Great Wall is mainly the Northern Wei, Northern Qi Dynasty, the Northern Zhou Dynasty, Eastern Wei, Sui, Liao, Jin Dynasties, these dynasties mostly minority regime. They defend their territory safety, prevent violations of foreign nations, imitate the Qin, Han built the Great Wall. The Great Wall of Ming Dynasty is the history of our country to build the last line of the the Great Wall, also built the largest, longest, most robust construction, equipment is the most perfect of the the Great Wall. Liaodong Yalu River in the East, West to Gansu and now Liaoning, Jiayuguan, across Hebei, Tianjin, Beijing, Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Shaanxi, Ningxia, Gansu and other 9 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions, a total length of 6300 kilometers. Someone had calculated that, if built in the Ming Dynasty the Great Wall masonry, earthwork, used to build a 5 meters high, 1 meters thick wall, can be more than a week around the world. Because the Ming Dynasty the Great Wall from our time is near, and built the magnificent strong, so the preserved remains of more natural and man-made damage, less, so far are also clear. Therefore, we said today, "the Great Wall" refers to the building of the Great Wall of the Ming dynasty. P11 illustration
