He was worshipped by the Eastern Han Dynasty as a general and the leader of the Wu county. It was not long before Sun Ce had just unified Jiangdong, the local people living in the hotel still had dissidents. When Sun Quan first took charge of Jiangdong, the situation was turbulent.

Sun Quan desperately prepared to lead the armies to oppose Cao Cao, relying only on the establishment of a fortress to a significant extent and Lu Meng will provide the troops with a strong base to easily defend. In addition, Cao Cao wanted to make a decisions and sent a relentless navy across the river to quietly interrupt Sun Quan's route, then Sun Quan's ships was surrounded and severely destroyed them by this means.
