By January of 1900, the entire Western community in China was aware of the Boxers, who boldly stated their intentions on posted placards reading "Protect the Empire: Exterminate Foreigners". The Chinese imperial leadership was initially opposed to the Boxers, and went so far as to promise foreigners ministers that they would act against them. Sharf, Frederic A. and Peter Harrington.

However, these reforms which could have led to China becoming a more modern state, were never introduced. A rebellion at court, lead by Guangxu’s aunt, Cixi, led to him being imprisoned. Cixi was given the power to rule China in his place. She opposed these reforms and they were never introduced. Therefore, in 1900, China remained.

One major event that happened in the 1900s was the assassination of President William McKinley in 1901. That same year, on September 14, Theodore Roosevelt became president of the United States.
