English: Nianhua print: The recapture of Tianjin

The recapture of Tianjin. After gaining access to the city arsenal, the Boxers bombarded Tianjin in June 1900, as Admiral Seymour and his expeditionary force, bound for Peking, were attacked by Dong Fuxiang's forces just outside the city. The bombardment inflicted considerable damage, especially on the Chinese houses inside the walled Chinese city. The more solid, western buildings of the foreign concessions fared better. This nianhua is dominated by the city walls and there is a group of soldiers with tiger shields in the bottom right-hand corner.

The troops under w:Dong Fuxiang's command were Muslims.
