According to Dr. Robert Coltman, the Boxer uprising began in the turbulent fall of 1898, when the empress dowager's resumption of power and the placement in Beijing of General Dong Fuxiang and his Muslim troops raised fears among foreigners in the capital. He refers to the riot at Lukuoch'iao or the Marco Polo Bridge when foreigners were injured by Gansu soldiers. C. Coltman was called down to Fengtai to come and help the resident engineers, A. G. Cox and Captain Norregaard, who had been stoned by a group of Dong Fuxiang's Gansu soldiers.
