The "Zhongshan" Warship, formerly known as the "Yongfeng" warship, is a gunboat. It was ordered in 1910 by the Qing Dynasty Navy Minister and the Beiyang Navy Admiral Sa Zhenbing at the Mitsubishi Plant in Nagasaki, Japan. The ship can hold 150 tons of coal and 16 tons of fresh water. The crew is 104 people. The cost is 680,000 silver dollars.
In the autumn of 1938, after the fall of Beijing and Shanghai, Wuhan became one of the main targets of the Japanese attack. The Zhongshan WarSship was ordered to participate in the Wuhan Defense War and was responsible for the warning and transportation tasks from Jiayu and Xindi to the Jinkou Town of Wuchang County. At that time, the main cannon and the sub-cannon of the Zhongshan Warship were removed and installed on several fortresses on the shore. At 15 o'clock on the afternoon of October 24, 1938, when the "Zhongshan" Warship cruised on the Jinkou River in Hubei, six enemy planes took turns to attack it. Captain Sa Shijun and other 25 people were killed in the battle, and more than 20 people were injured. The "Zhongshan" Warship's tail and other vital parts were shot, and after failed reparation, it was sunk in the waves.
On January 28, 1997, the Zhongshan Warship was salvaged. More than 3,400 pieces of various cultural relics from Japan, Germany and other countries were found and exhibited throughout China.
