1900 - One year and nine months into the bloody and protracted Philippine-American War (1899-1914), the imperialist invading Americans close the port of Boac for commerce; the Boac port was the exclusive port utilized in the Marinduque area in the Visayan Islands during the colonial Spanish era.
- The Pangasinan Revolt led by Juan de la Cruz Palaris erupts in
Binalatongan during the Spanish colonial rule of the Philippines; the uprising led by Palaris (born as Pantaleon Perez), which was the second revolt in the province of Pangasinan during the Spanish era that coincided with the British invasion of the Philippines, would spread to the towns
of Mangaldan, Calasiao, Dagupan, San Jacinto, Sta. Barbara, Manaoag,
Bayambang, Malasiqui, and Paniqui; however, with the signing of the
1763 Treaty of Paris that ended the Seven-Year War between Spain and
Britain, along with the successful suppression of the Silang Revolt in
Ilocos, the colonial Spanish authorities were able to concentrate on
Pangasinan, eventually quashing the rebellion and soon executing the brave, anti-colonial Palaris by hanging.
