Description

Ilocos Sur, 1899

The 24-year old General Gregorio del Pilar led the defense of Tirad Pass to delay pursuing Americans troops from capturing Aguinaldo. Only seven of the sixty Filipinos defending the pass survived. Found on Del Pilar’s dead body was his diary where he had written, “I am surrounded by terrible odds that will overcome me and my gallant men, but I die gladly, fighting for my beloved country…”
