The Yangtze Patrol, also known as the Yangtze River Patrol Force and Yangtze River Patrol or YangPat and ComYangPat, from 1854–1949, was a prolonged naval operation to protect American interests in the Yangtze River's treaty ports. The Yangtze Patrol also patrolled the coastal waters of China, protecting U.S. citizens, their property, and Christian missionaries. The Yangtze River is the longest river in China, and has always been important to the commerce of the country. Ocean-going vessels were able to proceed as far upstream as the city of Wuhan. This squadron-sized unit cruised the waters of the Yangtze from Shanghai on the Pacific Ocean into the far interior of China at Chungking. Initially, the Yangtze Patrol starting in 1854 was formed from ships of the United States Navy and assigned to the East India Squadron. In 1868, patrol duties were carried out by the Asiatic Squadron of the U.S. Navy. Under the unequal treaties, the United States, Japan, and various European powers, especially the United Kingdom, which had been on the Yangtze since 1897, were allowed to cruise China's rivers. In 1902, the United States Asiatic Fleet took control of the operations of the Yangtze Patrol. In 1922, the “YangPat”, an abbreviated shortening of Yangtze Patrol, was established as a formal component of the U.S. Navy in China. In 1942, at the beginning of World War II, the Yangtze Patrol effectively ceased operations in China because of the limited resources of the U.S. Navy which needed the patrol crews and their ships elsewhere in fighting the Japanese forces in Asia and the Pacific. Following the end of World War II, the Yangtze Patrol resumed its duties in 1945, but on a more limited basis with fewers ships on the Yangtze River during the Chinese Civil War. When the Chinese Communist forces eventually occupied the Yangtze River Valley in 1949, the U.S. Navy permanently ceased operations and disbanded the Yangtze Patrol.
