  • The First Sino-Japanese War (1 August 1894 – 17 April 1895) was fought between the Qing Dynasty China and Meiji Japan, primarily over control of Korea. After more than six months of continuous successes by Japanese army and naval forces and the loss of the Chinese port of Weihaiwei, the Qing leadership sued for peace in February 1895.Direct results of the war showed that the military strength and sovereignty of the Qing Dynasty had been severely weakened during the nineteenth century, especially by the Opium Wars; and it demonstrated that forced reform had modernized Japansignificantly since the Meiji Restoration in 1867, especially as compared with the Self-Strengthening Movement in China.[1]Regional dominance in East Asia shifted from China to Japan; and the Qing Dynasty, along with the classical tradition in China, suffered a major blow. These trends would later manifest in the 1911 Revolution.
