1857 - Vito L. Belarmino, one of the most brilliant Filipino military leaders during the Philippine Revolution against Spain and the Filipino-American War, is born in Silang, Cavite; Belarmino would join the Katipunan and engage the Spaniards in various skirmishes and,  later as a general, would be given command of Albay province to establish a [local[ republican government; and after Tabaco and Naga tragically fell in February 1900 to the invading imperialist United States forces, he will refuse to surrender and will defiantly organize a guerrilla outfit [to] repeatedly [harass] American installations in the Bicol region.
