Ma Dahan was a Dongxiang muslim who formed a pact with the fellow Dongxiang Ma Wanfu when rebelling against the Qing dynasty in 1895. They led their followers in Hezhou, Didao, and Xunhua to revolt. They formed a defence line between Guanghe, Sanjiaji, and Tiaoheyan. Ma Wanfu surrendered as the Chinese muslim loyalist Generals Dong Fuxiang and Ma Anliang arrived to crush the rebel muslims, and Ma Dahan was killed while fighting to the death.
