Philippine Independence Day Celebration!
Today, the Philippine Republic celebrates its independence from 300 years of Spanish rule. According to the history books, it was on this date in 1898 that General Emilio Aguinaldo raised the Filipino flag from the balcony of his mansion and called the people to take up arms against their Spanish colonizers. General Aguinaldo became the first president of the Philippine Republic and his proclamation of Philippine Independence is re-enacted yearly from the same balcony of the now historic mansion.
