The Xinhai Revolution in Xinjiang refers to the fighting that took place in Xinjiang during the Xinhai Revolution.
The last Qing dynasty governor Yuan Dahua fled and handed over his resignation to Yang Zengxin because he could not handle fighting the revolutionaries and did not want to work for the Republic of China. The Ili revolutionaries and the Gelaohui were eliminated by Yang. Yang appointed Ma Fuxing as military commander of 2,000 Chinese Muslim troops, to crush Yang's rivals. President Yuan Shikai recognized his rule, appointing him Governor of Xinjiang.
