The military settlement of Liaodong Town in the Ming Dynasty was an important part of the Great Wall's military defense system on the north side of the Ming Dynasty. The military environment in which it was located was very complicated. The existing researches mostly started from the aspects of geography, politics, and military systems, and analyzed its planning and layout. From the perspective of military geography, the analysis of the influence of the military geographical environment of Liaodong Town on the settlement planning and layout is relatively inadequate. Therefore, focusing on the geographical environment inside and outside the Great Wall, it analyzes its influence on military strategy, offensive route, and defense line layout, and then studies the layout and location characteristics of military settlements in Liaodong Town, and reveals the military and geographical characteristics of the planning and layout of the defense system in Liaodong Town.
