Hero of the Philippine Revolution
Gen. Miguel Malvar
  • last Filipino to surrender to the Americans
  • President after Aguinaldo was captured by the Americans
  • undertook the siege of San Pablo, Laguna
  • born September 27, 1865 Barrio San Miguel, Sto Tomas Batangas to Maximo Malvar and Tiburcia Carpio

            In 1892, Miguel Malvar was the Gobernadorcillo of his town. He was appointed by Gen. Aguinaldo as Lieutenant General on March 31, 1897. Malvar undertook the siege of San Pablo, Laguna and attacked cazadores of Batallion 11 in Barrio Sta. Clara in Sto. Tomas on November 19, and encountered the enemy in Barrio Bilog-bilog in Tanauan.

            Designated division general and chief of the second zone of operations (Southern Tagalog) on June 15, 1898, he liberated Tayabas after two months of battle.

            Despite the capture of Gen. Aguinaldo on March 23, 1901, Malvar continued the war against the Americans and setup his own government of the Philippine Republic, with him as supreme head and Commander-in-Chief.

            He mounted offensives against the Americans, but faced with overwhelming military superiority, he resorted to guerilla warfare, and later surrendered.
