The Taiping Rebellion was a widespread civil war in southern China from 1850 to 1864, led against the authorities by heterodox Christian convert Hong Xiuquan, who having received visions, maintained that he was the younger brother of Jesus Christ.

Lindley (1840-1873) had been an Honorary officer in Chung-Wang's guards, a special agent of the Ti-Ping General-in-Chief, and a commander of the "Loyal and Faithful Auxiliary Legion" (title page). He was a Royal Navy officer who, along with his wife Mary, joined the 1860 Taiping reform movement in China. He trained Taiping soldiers using modern techniques.
