Longyan is a prefecture-level city in southwestern Fujian province, People's Republic of China, bordering Guangdong to the south and Jiangxi to the west.HistoryIn 736 AD,, the prefecture of Tingzhou was established in western Fujian, or Minxi, administering Changting, Huanglian and Xinluo counties. Six years later Xinluo was named Longyan for the nearby cavern, a famous scenic site.Due to the ancient conflicts in central China and aggression from northern tribes, many Han people moved from central China to Longyan.in 1734, the area was designated Longyan Prefecture by the imperial court. In 1913, it reverted to its former name Longyan County and in 1981, Longyan City was established.Minxi was a strategic base during the Chinese Civil War.It's said that tens of thousands of people from Longyan joined the PLA during the Chinese Civil War, and nearly every family had someone sacrificed lives on behalf of CCP side. There are more than 26,000 locals that took part in the Long March which in total is carried out by 86,000.
