The Great Wall of China, a symbol of Chinese civilization, has had a meaningful impact on the culture of the United States, and perhaps unexpectedly so. In recent months, the idea of the Great Wall has frequently been employed in the context of President Donald Trump’s controversial Mexican American border wall. However, the notion of the “Chinese Wall” extends beyond this context and into fields as disparate as business, education, and the military. The Great Wall has cultural roots originating in the nation’s colonial era, when Founding Fathers Benjamin Franklin and George Washington recommended that a similar barrier be constructed protecting and maintaining the newly born nation.
In this essay, I will examine the Great Wall’s influence on American culture, with the intent of exploring how broader Chinese cultural elements have imprinted the nation’s history. I will begin this essay with a brief history of the Chinese wall, and then discuss its impact on the young United States prior and immediately following the American Revolution.

From Dr. Dave Wang's pioneer research we have learned that key America’s Founder’s–including Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison had worked to use Confucian ideas to make a great new nation in North America. Clearly, Confucianism was popular in colonial America.
The Ruist Association of America shares the treasures of the Ruist tradition with anyone who desires to live better lives and improve themselves, their families, their communities, and the world. I have found that the association has promoted Dr. Dave Wang's weblog to its readers. Below you will find the snapshot from the association's website.
Back to 2009, Valparaiso University in the suburb of Chicago host a Chinese diplomat and Dr. Dave Wang, a leading scholar of China's cultural influence during East-West Connections, a forum designed to increase understanding of the link between cultures in East Asia and the United States. Ten years passed, I still find the information is available. Below you can find the snapshot from the news on the forum.
