1900 - Detachment commanders of the Filipino forces are informed by Second Zone Secretary Potenciano Luna that Capt. Pedro Cadurales and several others had been killed, including patriotic soldiers who were shot after being captured by the enemy forces of the imperialist United States; writing in a circular a year and a month into bloody and protracted Philippine-American War (1899-1914), Luna also cautions the Filipino soldiers to be wary of infiltrators and to "Take care of our guns, bury them under the earth so nobody shall know about it, except the officer and the sergeant"; the bloody and protracted Filipino-American War began thirteen months earlier when the Bald Eagle forces deliberately provoked hostilities as part of the vile plan secretly ordered by the administration of Bald Eagle President William McKinley in his bid to push the American Congress into approving the ridiculous December 1898 Treaty of Paris wherein Spain supposedly "cedes" Philippines--its colony that valiantly fought for its independence--to the emerging superpower United States.
