1900 - Gen. Pio del Pilar, a controversial officer of the First Philippine Republic, is taken prisoner  at Guadalupe, Rizal by imperialist United States forces during the Philippine-American War; Gen. Pio del Pilar, who earlier fatally betrayed Katipunan Supremo Andres Bonifacio and  switched to the side of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo who had grabbed the leadership of the Revolution against Spain, will later also betray Gen. Artemio Ricarte's attempt to reunite Filipino military generals and rekindle the fire of the Philippine Revolution, this time against the Bald Eagle invaders.
