The first regiment of the Japanese troops started military drills day and night from late June,1937 around Beiping.On July 6,line-up Japanese forces tried to force their way to the Lugouqiao(Macro Polo Bridge),but were rejected by the Chinese troops garrisoned at the bridge.On the evening of July,7,1937,Japannese troops launched a "practice with live ammunition"several hundred meters away from the sentry of  Chinese forces at Lugouqiao.At about 11pm,gunshots were suddenly heard from eastern wanping county.Later,several Japanese troops were seen outside the county,claming that one of their soldiers was missing and requesting to enter the county to look for him.  
With the unreasonable resuest rejected,they decided to fight back.At 5 AM on July 8,reinforced Japanese reoops saaaulted the Wanping County,and the chinese 219th Regiment of the 37th Division of the 29th Army launched tenacious reistance.The Lugouqiao incident marked the beginning of the Eight-year Anti-Japanese War.

This 77th anniversary is bound to be more grand than before.Not only the high-level officials,but also the national leaders will attend.It seems that China ia going to take this chance to warn the right-wing forces in Japan.Since  Abe took office,he never stopped denying and distorting history.Few days ago,Abe administration ended a ban on "collective self-defence right",which means Japan's military options would be significantly widened and other country's stability would be under grave threats if Japan want to go further,actually,we have seen the possibility.
