 After Zhu Yuanzhang ascended the throne, he turned his anger to common people in Huaiqing Prefecture, saying they helped the tyrant to do evil and fought against heaven soldiers; hence he sent troops to "​clean"​ Huaiqing three times and massacre innocent people. According to old stories, Ming soldiers after murdering people and burning their houses, were often leaving on purpose money, food, cloths, etc. at the crossroad in the center of a village. If they found out that somebody took it, new troops were sent to search high and low for a missing article. Although people were hiding with their wives and children, but  eight to nine out of ten did not manage to escape the disaster. After these three "​cleanings"​ all the prefecture and its eight counties, the area of several thousand square kilometers, was covered by blood and bodies, almost no crops could be seen, a single rooster could hardly be heard within thousands villages; on the roads, weeds were knee-deep; the mansions were overgrown with them; a tidy human world in a moment turned into world of ghosts, too horrible to look at. At this point, Zhu Yuanzhang still not satisfied, "​imposed tax equal to original one's triple value" to Huaiqing prefecture. After Zhu Yuanzhang ascended the throne, he turned his anger to common people in Huaiqing Prefecture, saying they helped the tyrant to do evil and fought against heaven soldiers; hence he sent troops to "​clean"​ Huaiqing three times and massacre innocent people.
