1897 - Filipino revolutionary Emilio Aguinaldo y Famy names his all-Caviteno cabinet members following his supposed election in the fraudulent and scandalously anomalous Tejeros Convention as President of a new revolutionary body less than a month earlier and some three weeks before he will order the murder-by-execution of Kataastaasang Kagalanggalangang Katipunan nang manga Anak nang Bayan (KKK) Supremo Andres Bonifacio y de Castro; earlier, the Supremo issued the Acta de Tejeros that  nullified the Tejeros Convention  on grounds that it was marked by fraud, even as the "brains" of Katipunan, Emilio Jacinto y Dizon, had reiterated that Bonifacio is still the leader of the Philippine revolution in a letter dated April 11, 1897; Gen. Artemio Ricarte, one of those elected in the Convention, held the elections to have been marked by fraud and initially hesitated to take his oath as as General-in-Chief of the Revolutionary Army in a clandestine ceremony surreptitiously kept hidden from the Magdiwang chapter of the KKK on March 24.
