After turning around Kinmen's history, the situation of the Republic of China in Taiwan also stabilized. The Second Taiwan Strait Crisis is an important part of history. In just 44 days, Kinmen suffered 470,000 rounds of cannon fire. It wasn't until the Chinese Communists established diplomatic ties with the United States that this situation ended. This period of time, quite extraordinary to the people of Kinmen, is preserved in the August 23rds Artillery Battle Museum. The museum displays the cruelty of war, and the names of 587 soldiers and officers killed during battle are displayed on both sides of the wall outside the main entrance. It reminds visitors of their sacrifice and loyalty towards their country. The museum also exhibits retired weapons and fighter aircrafts, both of which once contributed to the tense situation on both sides. However, many people who visit the propoganda exhibition area can't help but smile, since Kinmen and China's location are quite close to one another, there was a small war when it came to the propoganda being exchanged.  There were texts and photos produced by both sides, and all sorts of methods used and spoken in order to get the other to surrender. It's fascinating to look at now. The museum even has a theater, where visitors can actually "experience" the shock of gunfire.
