The area now called Nanchang was first inhabited in the Han Dynasty, when a city named Gan was established on the site. Little of the area's history from this era remains, though it seems clear that the city remained in continual habitation, having been renamed Hongzhou during the Sui Dynasty and later during the Ming Dynasty it was renamed with the familiar name Nanchang.

During 1927, the Communist Party of China launched the Nanchang Uprising from the city, engaging in several large-scale battles, after which the communist forces were forced to retreat to safety in Jinggang Mountain, which is now regarded as the birthplace of the Red Army, and the seat of the Chinese Revolution, where Mao consolidated his forces.
