Enemy American invaders in Tarlac, late 1899

1899 - President Emilio Aguinaldo y Famy of the  Philippine-Republic-on-the-run publishes the  pamphlet "True Narrative of the Philippine  Revolution" in Tarlac  7 1/2 months after the  enemy United States secretly instigated the  Philippine-American War (1899-1914)  and 13  months after the infamous Mock of Battle of  Manila wherein the imperialist Americans falsely  made it appear before the world that it was their  forces and not the revolutionary Filipinos that  subdued the colonial Spaniards in the Southeast  Asian archipelago;  addressed "TO ALL CIVILIZED NATIONS AND ESPECIALLY TO THE GREAT NORTH AMERICAN REPUBLIC" and entitled 'Resena Veridica de la  Revolucion Filipina" in Spanish, the pamphlet tells  a litany of charges against the American invasion, including how the US government  has been manipulating the Filipino leaders into a false hope of independence.

_____ Filipino Gen. P. Garcia reports to Gen. Servillano Aquino y Aguilar about the attack of the freedom  fighters on a train carrying enemy American soldiers more than seven months after the Philippine-American War (1899-1914) began; led  by Commander Juan Balbuena, the hostilities involved  the order on 1st Company Bon. Torres Bugayon to attack the enemy train between Calulut and  Angels, resulting to 12 enemy casualties and  injury to one prisoner and two casualties and two  injuries on the side of the Filipino patriots.
