Her duty with YangPat offered excitement and variety: conducting roving armed patrols; convoying merchantmen (cargo ship); providing armed guards for American flag steamers (Steamboat); and "showing the flag" to protect American lives and property

the Upper Ordovician into two stages. After considerable research, however, it was determined that no single faunal zone existed that could accommodate the upper stage of this division. Therefore, in 2003, the ICS voted to add an additional stage to its official international time scale. This was named the Hirnantian after Bancroft's stage. The IUGS is currently (mid-2005) nearing a decision on whether to ratify the Wangjiawan North section as the official Global Boundary Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP) for the Hirnantian stage. This section is located near the village of Wangjiawan, approximately 42 km north of Yichang city, in the People's Republic of China. It was approved unanimously in 2004 by the ICS. In spring 928, Xifang captured Jingnan's Gui Prefecture (歸州, in modern Yichang, Hubei), but soon Jingnan forces recaptured it. Wikipedia:Yichang

After ''Ashuelot'' crossed Tungting Lake, she found that rapid current, sharp bends, and the narrowing of the stream significantly slowed her progress and greatly increased the difficulty and danger of her movement. As a result, soon after the ship reached Yichang, Matthews and a small party of officers and guests disembarked and made an eight-day march on up the Yangtze Valley to determine whether or not it would be prudent for him to attempt to take the ship still higher. The overland journey brought the party to Kweifu. After a two-day visit, the Americans boarded a junk (Junk (ship)) which took them back downriver to ''Ashuelot'' at Ichang. Matthews' observation of the gorges and rapids during the return passage convinced him that only an especially designed and highly powerful paddle-wheel steamer — whose wheels were powered independently by separate engines — could safely negotiate that part of the upper Yangtze. thumb G209 on the northern outskirts of Badong's county seat (File:Badong-G209-5060.jpg) Due to the difficult terrain and the road conditions, the most convenient way to reach Badong's county seat is with a Yangtze riverboat. Both regular boats and hydrofoils call in the busy Badong harbor on the way up and down between Yichang and Chongqing. - Yichang Hubei Wikipedia:Yichang
