Katipunan Seal signed with blood
1896 -  Some five months before the outbreak of the Philippine Revolution against Spain, the Supreme Council of the  Kataastaasang, Kagalanggalangang Katipunan nang manga Anak nang Bayan (KKK), appoints a committee tasked with negotiating the purchase of arms and ammunition from Japan; the Katipunan is a secret society aimed at liberating the Southeast Asian archipelago from the yoke of over 300 years of Spanish colonization; the Katipunan committee members  were Jose Dizon, Mariano Crisostomo, and Jose Ma. Basa, and Emilio Jacinto,  described as the 'soul of the Katipunan'  by no less than Supremo Andres C. Bonifacio for his immense contributions to the philosophy (and tactics) of the revolutionary society.
