It is an important part of the three major armed uprisings of Huangma, Shangcheng and Liuhuo, which laid the revolutionary base of Hubei, Henan and Anhui provinces.

The Shangcheng Uprising was also a successful example of the peasant armed uprising led by the local Party organizations in Henan and Hubei provinces in the early stage of the agrarian revolution, which was coordinated, carefully deployed and jointly participated in the leadership of the two provinces; a peasant armed uprising with the nature of military movement, a successful example of the organic combination of military movement and agricultural movement; and a successful example of applying social relations network to the revolutionary struggle and serving the general situation of the revolution. The success of the Shangcheng Uprising changed the pattern of the struggle between the enemy and ourselves in the Dabie Mountains, strengthened the revolutionary struggle in Hubei, Henan and Anhui, and made great contributions to the Chinese revolution.
