Tuyen Quang Overview
Tuyen Quang is a North of Vietnam’s mountainous province with total natural area of 5,860 square kilometers, and total population of 727,751 people (in 2005). 
    In the August Revolution, Tuyen Quang province had the honor to be the Capital of Liberated Zone and was chosen as the revolutionary centre of the whole country by the Central Party and Uncle Ho. In Tan Trao commune, Son Duong district, there happened such historical events related to destiny of the country as: the National Conference of the Central Party deciding to lead the General Uprising to seize the national power and electing the National Uprising Committee; the National Congress meeting at Tan Trao Communal House to establish the National Committee for Liberation, i.e. the Provisional Government headed by Uncle Ho.

The Congress supplemented and completed the strategies for deployment of the resistance war, foundation of the state, proposed duties of building up the powerful Labor Party of Vietnam, and decided important policies and measures to lead the long term resistance war to the glorious victory. After the success in the resistance war against the French, the Provincial Party and people of Tuyen Quang continued building up the firm rear, fulfilled the duties of the big rear for the large front line, helped to win the US Empire and contributed to the success of the People's Liberation Cause for the national unity.
