History 

Huang Hua Gang Park has a stone tomb behind which is a monument that is inscribed with the 72 names of the martyrs. On top of the monument stands a replica of Statue of Liberty. According to history, San Yat Sen, a precursor of Democratic Revolution in the country had promoted the local Alliance Society for carrying out various activities against feudalism and imperialism.
 
On the day of the event, the revolution had been initiated in the Guangzhou City for overthrowing Qing Dynasty. Huang Xiang had led over 130 people for attacking the government offices for a day. Lin Shishuang, Yu Peilun, Lin Juemin as well as various other heroes had to give up their life in this process. Pan Dawei, an Alliance Society member, had risked himself for burying the martyrs in Gongzhou at Huanghuagang.
