BACKGROUND (Not Back-grind) Japan invaded China in 1894 and won control of the Liaotung Peninsula (Sino-Japanese) The European Powers, fearing a balance of power shift, intervened (The Triple Intervention) and pressured Japan to give it back to the Chinese In 1898, Russia had got permission from China into granting it a lease for the strategically important port of Port Arthur (now Lü-shun) In the process, Russia gained rights to extend the Trans- Siberian Railroad across Chinese-held Manchuria to the Russian seaport of Vladivostok, thus gaining control of an important strip of Manchurian territory.

War Ends Military blunders and bad decisions led to the two main ground forces in Russia to surrender without consulting the Tsar The war was never popular in Russia in the First place Political unrest on the home front heightened (Bloody Sunday) in Russia Naval battle near Vladivostok was won by the Japanese Tsar Nicolas II moves for negotiation
Treaty of Portsmouth President Theodore Roosevelt of the United States served as mediator - Portsmouth, N.H., U.S. (Aug. 9-Sept. 5, 1905). Japan gained control of the Liaotung Peninsula (and Port Arthur) and the South Manchurian railroad (which led to Port Arthur) Russia agreed to evacuate southern Manchuria, which was restored to China Japan's control of Korea was recognized
