In 1900, one of the eyewitness to the Boxer Uprising called Ai Sheng said, “At sundown there was a huge commotion along with the sounds of shrieking and wailing. It was discovered that the Boxers had burned several dozen Christian families to death. A workman who went to have a look reported that the men of the families had fled, leaving only the women, who were incinerated in their homes.

The decay during the time period of the 1920’s is also depicted in Dan Cody, the combination between Buffalo Bill Cody and Daniel Boone in his name shows the contrast between a man who helped explore the new land, and a mock character celebrated in the 1920’s.
