“MCKINLEY, OUR HERO, NOW AT REST”


McKinley, our hero, now at rest.

NARRATOR


Ten days after President McKinley’s death, the residents of Balangiga, a tiny village 400 miles southeast of Manila, attacked the local U.S. garrison. While U.S. soldiers ate breakfast, the church bells rang a signal. Filipinos brandishing machetes emerged from their hiding places. Forty-eight Americans, two-thirds of the garrison, were butchered.
RICARDO JOSE

For the Filipinos, this was seen as a victorious battle on the side of the revolution, but to the Americans it was seen as a--an atroc--an atrocity of the gravest proportions.
