Historical Facts[edit]

Main article: Siege of Baler

"The Last Ones of the Philippines" is the name given to the Spanish soldiers who fight in the Siege of Baler against the supporters of independence and against the US Army (the latter was in the Spanish-American War. In Spain, it was called "The Disaster of '98").

The Siege of Baler lasted from the 1st of July, 1898 until the 2nd of June, 1899. During these 11 months, the Spaniards were isolated in a church that became their fortified position. The Spanish troops were a small garrison of 50 soldiers from the "2º de Cazadores" under the charge of Lieutenant D. Juan Alonso Zayas. They faced approximately 800 rebel soldiers. The Spanish soldiers fortified the church and resisted the constant attacks of the rebels for 11 months without provisions.
