Description

Bulacan, 1897

The hardships caused by the revolution convinced Emilio Aguinaldo to arrange a truce with Spanish authorities, called the Pact of Biak-na-Bato. Aguinaldo and his officers agreed to go into exile in Hong Kong and surrender their weapons in exchange for long sought reforms and 800,000 Mexican pesetas. Neither side fulfilled their end of the bargain. The Spanish government did not implement reforms. Aguinaldo and his men purchased weapons with the first 400,000 received, and called themselves the Hong Kong Junta.
