Twenty-seven-year-old Emilio Aguinaldo, the son of a wealthy landowner, rose through the ranks of the revolutionary movement. Aguinaldo became president of the Katipunan in the spring of 1897.

EMILIO AGUINALDO

Filipino citizens! Let us follow the example of European and American nations. Let us march under the Flag of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity!
NARRATOR

With two-hundred thousand troops fighting in Cuba, Spain could not afford a war in the Philippines. Spanish officials approached Aguinaldo with a bid for peace.

CESAR VIRATA

And one of the conditions was for the revolutionaries, ah, the leadership anyway, to be exiled to Hong Kong and to be paid a sum of money. And then certain reforms should be instituted in the Philippines.
NARRATOR

Though Aguinaldo did not believe that the Spanish would implement the reforms, he needed the money for food and supplies. Aguinaldo agreed to embark for Hong Kong. There he would purchase arms for shipment back to the Philippines.
