ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is as follows. First, it is to investigate that the Japanese Army executed attacks mainly on the coast of Jeolla Province. There were two retaliatory attacks made by them. After the naval battle of Myeong-ryang, the southwestern coast of Jeolla Province was chiefly attacked in the first battle, and the army made attacks mainly on their eastern coast in the second battle. Second, this study is to reveal the activities of Choi Dae-seong in volunteer corps. His activities play an important role to reveal the truth of a battle at Anchi, Boseong, Jeolla Province. Third, this study investigates why Choi Dae-seong was not honored although he, one of the soldiers in few of armies in the cause of justice, fought against Japanese soldiers even when government troops evaded fighting against the Japanese Army. It is found that Admiral of the Naval Forces, Yi Sun-sin, reported Choi Dae-seong as a runaway soldier in the fierce battle where it was hard to get any news through somebody. Fourth, it is to investigate why his descendant and local scholars made request for reestablishing his impaired reputation and how they tried to correct a wrong record about him over one hundred years. At last, he restored his honor and secured government position and was promoted by a governmen after his death. But it remains a problem that he is still described as a runaway soldier in Seonjo-sillok and that it can not be corrected. That is, this study shows how significantly one wrong record has an effect on a history and people.
