Philippine-American War, 1899

Entitled: "Till my regiment is mustered out" - Funston's reply when asked how long he could hold a captured trench." Frederick N. Funston (September 11, 1865 - February 19, 1917) was a General in the United States Army, best known for his role in the Spanish-American War and the Philippine-American War. He received the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Philippine-American War. The Philippine-American War (1899-1902) was an armed conflict between the USA and Philippine revolutionaries. The conflict arose from the struggle of the First Philippine Republic to secure independence from the United States following the latter's acquisition of the Philippines from Spain after the Spanish-American War. Fighting erupted on February 4, 1899, and quickly escalated into the 1899 Second Battle of Manila. On June 2, 1899, the First Philippine Republic officially declared war against the USA. The war officially ended on July 4, 1902. The war and occupation by the USA would change the cultural landscape of the islands, as people dealt with an estimated 34,000 to 220,000 Philippine casualties, disestablishment of the Roman Catholic Church, and the introduction of the English language in the islands as the primary language of government, education, business, industrial and increasingly in future decades among families and educated individuals.
