In 1900, the uprising that broke out in China to expel all foreign devils startled the world. International naval contingents in the region were reinforced by troops from several nations. The United States sent the Ninth Infantry and a regiment of marines from Manila as part of an allied expedition that tried to reach Peking. When the Chinese insurgents, who were known as the Boxers, badly defeated this force, several nations sent larger contingents. The Fourteenth Infantry and Reilly's Battery were part of the American force ordered to Tientsin. When Captain Reilly was killed, Captain Thomas Ridgway, Fifth Artillery, was ordered to command the battery. Throughout this period, the most important thing in Charles Summerall' life, was Miss Mordecai. They wrote constantly to each other.
