While the United States fought in the Civil War, China was also engulfed in bloodshed – the Taiping Rebellion. How many people died during the Taiping Rebellion?

The goals of the Taipings were religious, nationalist, and political in nature; they sought the conversion of the Chinese people to the Taiping's version of Christianity, the overthrow of the ruling Manchus, and a wholesale transformation and reformation of the state.
