Today in Philippine History: General Funston Captures Aguinaldo

MARCH 23, 1901
American General Frederick Funston successful captured President Emilio Aguinaldo in a house in Palanan, Isabela. His capture was a well-planned action that involved 78 Macabebe Scouts who were loyal to the Americans. They posed as the added reinforcements to augment Aguinaldo’s forces along with the five ex-Philippine Army officers Gregorio Cadhit, Cecilio Segismundo, Hilario Tal Placido, Dionisio Bato and Lazaro Segovia.
