Today in Philippine History: President Jose P. Laurel

MARCH 9, 1891
President Jose Paciano Laurel y Garcia was born in Tanauan, Batangas. During World War II, he was installed as president of the Second Philippine Republic, a Japanese puppet government from 1943 to 1945. It was only during the term of President Diosdado Macapagal (1961-65) that Laurel was officially considered the legitimate 3rd President of the Philippines.
