1900, April 17


Americans establish a detachment in the old convento of Laoag. Don Jose Ver, mayor of Sarrat, leads about 200 or 500 of his townmates in an attack against the Americans in Laoag, under the rallying cry of “Rit-ritemon cayong!” (Rip the fence apart!). (Planned by Aglipay, the raid should have been a simultaneous attack from Batac, Sarrat, Bacarra and Vintar). The raid is unsuccessful because of poor coordination. Jose Ver is captured and scourged to death.  [Ochosa; Virrey-Romero]
