In 1859 Frederick Townsend Ward arrived in Shanghai in time to play a key command role in fighting the Taiping Rebellion. He had fought previously in Mexico and in the Crimea, and made a brilliant difference in China until his death in battle three years on. He was replaced by the British adventurer, "Chinese" Gordon, later a martyr fighting radical Islamists in Khartoum.
