Northern Expedition: As the Nationalist Chinese troops of Chiang Kai-shek approached Shanghai, Chinese Communist Party leader Zhou En-lai led the Shanghai Uprising to aid Generalissimo Chiang. A strike was called and 600,000 workers left their jobs. Rebels then seized police stations and armories, cut power and telephone lines, and obeyed Zhou’s orders to not harm foreigners in the city.
