Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo Monument in Kawit, Cavite
This was taken on September 26, 2005 during my daughter’s educational field trip .
Emilio Aguinaldo (March 23, 1869 â€“ February 6, 1964) was a Filipino general, politician, and independence leader. He played an instrumental role during the Philippines’ revolution against Spain, and the subsequent Philippine-American War that resisted American occupation.
Aguinaldo became the Philippines’ first President. He was also the youngest (at age 29) to have become the country’s president, and the longest-lived (having survived to age 94).
