What happened in 1896 in the Philippines?
Similarly, what caused the Philippine revolution?
The revolution against Spain was sparked in 1896 after Spanish authorities discovered the “Katipunan,” a Filipino revolutionary society plotting against their colonisers. It ended in 1902, where Spain lost and ceded sovereignty of the Philippines to the United States.
One may also ask, when did the Philippine Revolution start? August 23, 1896
Considering this, why did the Philippines rebel against Spain?
Twenty years after the 1872 revolt, Filipino nationalists began to organize secretly. While the Filipinos believed that a U.S. defeat of Spain would lead to a free Philippines, the U.S. refused to recognize the new government. Outraged by the betrayal, the Philippine republic declared war on the United States.
Did the Philippine revolution succeed?
On January 21, 1899, the Philippines declared their independence and elected a president. While the Filipinos succeeded in creating their own constitution and forming a more formal army outside of Spanish rule, they did not succeed in gaining their complete independence after the Philippine Revolution.
