Today in Philippine History: Deadly Cholera Gets Mabini

MAY 13, 1903
Apolinario Mabini died of cholera in Manila just weeks when he swore allegiance to the United States after his return from exile. On December 10, 1899, Mabini was captured after months of hiding from the American authorities. While in detention, he was asked to swear allegiance to America and withdraw his support for the Filipino insurgents but he refused. After a year in prison, he was exiled to Guam and was allowed to return in February 1903. Mabini wrote La Revolucion Filipina (The Philippine Revolution) which was published in 1907.
