The article focuses on the anti-Western campaign of the Koreans during the 19th century. It discusses how U.S. Major General William T. Sherman fought and later on died in the country. Korea was the last Far Eastern nation to hold out against European influence. Yi Ha-ung or the Taewongun, the ruler in the country in 1864, did many things as part of the campaign, including the closing of international trade and persecuting Korean Catholics.
