Mao started to change china through communism so he could change the culture of china. He didn't want people to focus on their past traditions. He only wanted people to celebrate the communist government .
The long march
Nationalists party leader Chiang Kai Shek forced Mao Zedongs army of 100,000 troops out of southern china. So then Maos troops had to March 6,000 miles west and north so they could escape . During the march he lost many men but he was able to get the support of many peasant farmers that he met in china .
