The Church at Baler

Site of a one-year siege of a small Spanish garrison from 1898 to 1899 during the Philippine Revolution. The garrison refused to believe that the hostilities were over, believing that the news were just a ruse, until finally convinced in June 1899. The garrison then surrendered and the survivors were returned to Spain.
