DOMINGO T. FRANCO

He followed Rizal's order to keep in his care the papers of La Liga Filipina, a group that wanted changes in the government.

When the revolution erupted, he was arrested and jailed in Fort Santiago. His wife tried to pay for his release, but he scolded her instead, believing that this would be an act of betrayal against his country.

Together with 12 other compatriots, he was shot in Bagumbayan.
