Without a single fire arm, sword or fighting weapon of any kind
the Korean people, on the mémorable March 1 (1919) rose like one man
to cry ont for their independence. Thousands npon thonsands of them
paraded in almost every city and village of any importance with nothing
but the Korean flags in their hands, shouting "Mansei." Resentment
against Japanese militarism and oppression was intense but the Koreans
conducted themselves with marvellous self-restraint. Although the Japanese
were taken by complète surprise no violence was doue to their person and
no damage to their property. Yet when the shock of surprise had passed
away, shame and self-remorse quickly gave vent to Prussian-like brutality.
