    just talked to my dad about this, as I had never heard of the Taiping Rebellion.  He said the rebels thought God's power would stop bullets.  So when they faced the Qing Dynasty's army... yep, massive deaths, as it turns out they weren't actually bulletproof.

    If anyone wonders what the fighting was like in China in the 1860s, The Warlords captured it pretty well.  Jet Li plays a Qing Dynasty-affiliated commander battling some of the Taiping rebels.
