Unification of China

It had been a rough time in our area for around 250 years. There are no united kingdoms. Seven of them have fought again and again for control of China. The Qin Dynasty finally achieved unification of China using their horses and foot soldiers, which is a pretty new thing for us. These guys rolled in and stayed in power from 221-207 BCE. Some cool things were introduced in this time, like the channel built by Li Bing through Mount Qian. I’m happy about it because my house isn’t flooded anymore!
There is one thing that’s kind of bad: our first Emperor, Qin Shi Huangdi. He’s a legalist, and I’m not so sure about his ruling methods. We’ll see how things go, I guess!
