commemorate the Sanyuanli Incident. The museum showcases uniforms and weapons captured from the British, and today still attracts many visitors. But this small victory did not save Guangzhou; the new Commissioner, Yishan, agreed to negotiate. Lord Palmerston was far from satisfied with the war as negotiations dragged on.
