Filipino soldiers resisting imperialist United States invasion 
1899 - One and one-half years into the Philippine-American War and 25 months after Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo y Famy declared Philippine Independence from colonial Spain, gullibly invoking "the protection of the Powerful and Humanitarian Nation," that was supposedly the United States of America, Aguinaldo will create an Intelligence Office in Manila to collect all  available data about the invading enemy US forces for  the information use of the Philippine Army and Philippine committees abroad; exactly a year later, on July 22, 1900,  Aguinaldo will issue a proclamation declaring all Filipinos who  attend the "peace" festivals organized by the imperialist  Americans are traitors to motherland.
