1898 - One day after his bodyguards murdered Gen. Antonio Luna, the perceived threat to his position as revolutionary leader, Dictator President Emilio Aguinaldo wires all the military chiefs in five northern provinces  to the effect that he is taking active direction of the military operations and that he is establishing his temporary headquarters at Bamban, Tarlak; Aguinaldo, widely blamed for setting a trap  for the assassination because he did not meet Luna despite his signed telegram calling the former to a conference, also issues a decree delineating the geographic and political divisions of provinces and appointing a military chief for each zone during the Philippine Revolution against Spain.
