Today in Philippine History: Luciano San Miguel Dies in Battle

MARCH 27, 1903
Luciano San Miguel (January 7, 1875 - March 27, 1903), a Magdiwang who became one of General Emilio Aguinaldo’s best generals of the Philippine-American War died in the battle of Corral-na-Bato in Morong (now Rizal). A year earlier, as the newly elected Captain-General and the Supreme Commander of what’s left of the revolutionary forces, he launched guerrilla tactics against American forces and was among the most wanted leaders until his death.
