He not only accumulated actual practice experience but also left great achievements.
When Zhu Xieyuan was Sichuan Administration Commissioner, Rebellion of SheAn, which started from the first year of Tianqi（天啟）, happened. Although they were trapped in Chengdu（成都）, under Zhu’s command, they were able to rout She Chongming. After this, they recovered Chongqin（重慶）, break down Yongning（永寧）, and settle down at Shu（蜀）. Zhu was well trusted by the imperial government and was promoted to Guizhou（貴州）, Huguang（湖廣）, Sichuan, Yunnan（雲南）, Guangxi（廣西） Supreme Commander and Guizhou Grand Coordinator. During the period of Guizhou, Huguang, Sichuan, Yunnan, Guangxi supreme commander, he put down Rebellion of SheAn. Even though he had disagreed with his colleague, however, his opinion got the support from central government and was able to be operated.
