抗法名将刘秉璋诞辰185周年纪念活动,暨刘秉璋墓园开园仪式于今天上午9点在庐江县万山镇举行。参加纪念活动与开园典礼的有安徽省、巢湖市政协文史负责人,庐江县委县政府四大班子主要负责人、镇村主要负责人以及刘秉璋的后裔宗亲。刘秉璋(1826~1905),字仲良,庐江县矾山镇刘屯人,农民家庭,自幼读书。咸丰十年(1860年),中进士,选为庶吉士,授编修。他胸怀大志,青年中举成名,由于国家动乱,由翰林院编修而入军幕,投笔从戎,平吴剿捻后,而逐步成长为一名封建官吏。中法战争期间,他力抗外侮,指挥了著名的“镇海之役”,维护了国家的尊严。他督蜀十年,勤政廉洁,用竹笼古法维修都江堰水利工程,造福百姓。由于“成都教案”,他维护民族利益,被清廷罢职。他一生谈泊名利,却十分重视教育,为家乡捐建了三乐堂书院、南京庐江试馆,培养了一大批有用之材。为重视文教事业,他还在庐阳书院、敬敷书院、祟文书院设立助学资金等。此外还有刘氏之后轶事。
