Pingjiang County (simplified Chinese: 平江县; traditional Chinese: 平江縣; pinyin: Píngjiāng Xiàn) is a county in the northeast of Hunan province, China. It is the easternmost county-level division of the prefecture-level city of Yueyang.

The county is located on the eastern margin of the province, the Miluo River runs through the county from east to west. It is bordered to the north by Yueyang County, to the west by Miluo City, to the south by Changsha County and Liuyang City, to the east by Xiushui and Tonggu Counties of Jiangxi, to the northeast by Tongcheng County of Hubei.[1]

Pingjiang County covers an area of 4,114 km2 (1,588 sq mi), as of 2015, it had a registered population of 1,106,900 and a permanent resident population of 979,300. The county has 19 towns and 5 townships under its jurisdiction. The government seat is Hanchang Town (汉昌镇).[2]


In the Chinese Civil War, Pingjiang was a part of the Hunan-Hubei-Jiangxi Revolutionary Base Area (湘鄂赣革命根据地), and, from 1931 November, of the Hunan-Hubei-Jiangxi Soviet (湘鄂赣苏维埃).[citation needed]

The Communist Marshal Peng Dehuai was a Kuomintang Colonel in 1928, when he was stationed in Pingjiang with orders to eliminate local groups of communist guerrillas who had fled to the area following Chiang Kai-shek's nationwide suppression of Communists. Because Peng had secretly joined the Chinese Communist Party he instead kept his unit passive and began to organize local Communist Party branches. Peng rebelled against the Kuomintang on 28 July 1928, beginning his career as a military leader in the Red Army from his base in Pingjiang. Some of Peng's subordinates in the rebellion survived and became important military figures themselves, including generals Huang Kecheng and Peng Shaohui.[3]
