bells on the brain....

the largest bell in asia at the parish church of santa monica in panay.

ok, so, i kinda forgot how time consuming, difficult and altogether confusing researching historical facts can be. well, at least for me it is...

"the capiz revolt" or the first act of revolt against spain occurred may 3, 1897 in the small town of panay in the province of capiz. the spanish filipino war began in 1896 ,but the townspeople of panay had fought the spainards as early as 1877. numerous battles & skirmishes continued until the us seized control of the panay islands in december of 1899.
