CHAPTER 6: KKK and the Philippine Revolution
CRY OF BALINTAWAK/PUGADLAWAN
•Led by Bonifacio, the Katipuneros tore their cedula certificates which symbolizes the Filipino vassalage to Spain
•The first battle of the Katipuneros with the Spaniards took place at Barrio of Pasong Tamo
•Bonifacio then led his force to Hagdang Bato in Mandaluyong where he issued his manifesto urging the Filipinos to rise up against the Spaniards.
•The Katipuneros planned to attack the polvorin or powder magazine in San Juan del Monte on August 30 in an attempt to seize weapons.
•The coordinated attack on the polvorin, however, never took place as Bonifacio had overslept.
•Around 150 Katipuneros lost their lives in this first major battle of the revolution.
•The Katipuneros of Cavite began the revolution by seizing the town halls and seizing the arms of the local police and civil guards on the early hours of August 31

The imminent fall of Spanish authority attracted other foreign powers to the Philippines.
Following Dewey’s victory at Manila Bay, countries such as Germany, Japan, Great Britain , and France sent their warships to protect their respective interests in the Philippines.
The Germans proved to be a great irritation to Dewey. While the other countries respected his authority, the Germans acted provocatively.
The German squadron which had eight ships was larger than that of the Americans who only had seven.
Its manpower complement was bigger than the Americans and their armaments were also superior.
The Germans were looking for lands to colonize.
Documents in the German foreign ministry revealed the existence of three plans concerning the Philippines:
- to place the Philippines under a German prince
- to divide the Philippines among the world powers including Germany.
- to place the country under the guarantee of the world powers.
The German foreign minister
Bernhard von Bulow
expected that Filipinos would support German rule because many Filipino leaders had a deep admiration for the German nation.
German provocations in Manila Bay reached its climax following the incident involving the warship Cormoran and US navy ships.
The German vessel ignored the signals for it stop - for boarding and inspection.
immediately sent an officer to complain to Dewey about the provocations committed by the Americans.
There were some tense moments in Manila Bay after the German officer left to report to Von Diederichs. At this point Captain Sir Edward Chichester of the British navy moved his ships closer to the Americans.
The balance of power now shifted in favor of Dewey as the combined British and American forces were now more superior than that of the Germans.
Aug. 13, 1898. The German ships quietly left.
July 17. Aguinaldo offered Gov. Gen. Basilio Agustin the terms of an honorable surrender and guaranteed the immunity of the persons and properties of those who surrendered.
Spain instructed Agustin to surrender only to the Americans because…
Surrendering to the Filipinos would be harmful to Spanish honor
Surrendering to the Americans might give them concessions including a money indemnity
They feared retribution from the Filipinos
Agustin made the offer to surrender to the Americans in July but Dewey refused because he lacked men to occupy the city.
As the Filipinos were securing most of the country, Aguinaldo had the dictatorial gov’t disbanded and replaced by a revolutionary form of gov’t.
Taking advantage of the momentum, in the late afternoon of June 12, Aguinaldo had the independence of the Philippines formally proclaimed.
Though opposed by Mabini who said that the proclamation of independence was “premature and imprudent,” it had another purpose of sending a message to the Americans of the Filipinos’ resolve to attain their freedom
Aug. 22. the proclamation of independence was approved by local officials gathering in Bacoor.
Aguinaldo’s officials began to develop suspicions about the American intentions in the country. The Filipinos were forced to vacate their positions to accommodate the increasing number of American troops.
While these events were transpiring the Spaniards and Americans were meeting secretly.
It was decided that a mock battle (“Battle of Manila”) be waged to save Spanish honor and that Filipinos should have no participation.
Aug. 13, American warships began bombarding Manila.
Spain officially sued for peace on July 22
Aguinaldo moved the capital of his gov’t to Malolos on Aug. 22.
Sept. 15. The Revolutionary Congress was inaugurated.
Sept. 29. the Congress approved the proclamation of Philippine independence
The Congress then moved to draft a constitution for a republic. Three drafts were presented to Congress by…
Mabini’s opponents his Constitutional Program reasoning that it was too Masonic.
The Paterno draft reminded the Congress of the Spanish Constitution of 1868 and was also rejected.
The last draft made by Calderon which was inspired by the constitution of France, Belgium, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Brazil and Nicaragua, was accepted.
Debates on the draft constitution lasted until Nov. 5, 1898.
Jan. 21. General Aguinaldo proclaimed the 1899 Constitution
Jan. 23. the Philippine Republic was inaugurated.
Event's Affecting Aguinaldo's Actions
Dec. 10, 1898. Treaty of Paris
After much deliberation the Americans decided to keep the Philippines.
To American capitalists the Philippines represented a rich source of raw materials for American industries and a market for American goods.
Under the Treaty of Paris, Spain ceded the Philippines, Guam, and Puerto Rico and in return received an indemnity of $20M.
Filipino diplomats led by Felipe Agoncillo were to propose practical alternatives to the colonization of the Philippines.
December 1898. Aguinaldo publicly protested the Treaty of Paris.
While Manila was already in the hands of the Americans, Filipinos in other parts of the islands continued to fight the Spaniards in other parts of the country.
Troops led by Aniceto Lacson and Juan Araneta convened a gov’t that proclaimed loyalty to Aguinaldo.
In Mindanao, revolutionary activities and events in Manila forced the Spanish troops to evacuate their posts and concentrate themselves in Zamboanga.
With the signing of the Treaty of Paris. The Spanish forces withdrew to Zamboanga and abandoned their fortifications.
The Filipinos controlled Mindanao for at least 6 months before the Americans took over the island.
