The Hassan uprising was a rebellion among the Moro people of Jolo during the Moro Rebellion. It was led by a Muslim datu named Datu Hassan the youngest son of the Great Raja Muda Ammang. Panglima Hassan had assembled followers in Jolo's Crater Lake region, preparing to attack Jolo.:100 Leonard Wood led a force of 1,250 soldiers, including Robert L. Bullard's 28th Infantry, in an attack on "Hassan's Palace", the "strongest cotta in the Sulu Archipelago".:100–101 The Moro's fled and the Americans burned the fort.:101 Hassan surrendered but then escaped, which led Wood to destroy every hostile cotta he encountered, resulting in the death of Datu Andung on Mount Suliman.:101 Although never capturing Hassan, Wood did end up killing 1,500 Moros, which included women and children.:102
The uprising ended in March 1904, when Hassan and two others were cornered by 400 men under Scott's command at Bud Bagsak.:102 It took 34 gunshots to finally kill Hassan.:103 The Moros only had a few rifles and kris blades. An American who was injured was almost reached with his mouth holding a kris, by the injured Hassan.   It was only a head shot with a .45 caliber which killed Hassan since an American was about get hacked with a barong wielded by Hassan despite being shot 32 times already by Krag rifle bullets.
