APRIL 16, 1902
General Miguel Malvar (September 27, 1865 – October 13, 1911) surrendered to U.S. Brig. Gen. James Franklin Bell in Lipa, Batangas. His surrender officially ended the Philippine-American War. Malvar assumed the command of the Philippine Forces after President Emilio Aguinaldo’s capture and exile to Hong Kong in 1901. He then created a new government with him as the head and Commander-in-Chief and conducted guerrilla operations against the Americans.
