WikiProject Philippine LGUs[edit]

Wondering how to edit the article? The WikiProject Philippine LGUs could be of help. :)


The official site says that the area is 2,637.67 km², which contradicts the figure in the article. Still need to confirm which is correct. (Just because it came from the official site of the province doesn't mean it's true). —seav 09:17 26 Jun 2003 (UTC)

The "Barasoain Ecclesiastical Museum" and "Barasoain Museum" mentioned here, I believe, refers to the same museum, which is actually the "Barasoain Ecclesiastical Museum" Bijaei Rodriguez (talk) 18:28, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

History[edit]

"When the Americans established a civil government in the Philippines, they held the first election in the country in the town of Baliuag, Bulacan on May 6, 1899. "<<-- I doubt the veracity of this fact because I believe that it is highly improbable that an election was held in Baliuag, if it was really true that the first local elections was actually held there, in 1899. why?

1. 1999 was the height of the conflict between the Filipinos and the Americans. the province of Bulacan was a hotbed of "insurrection" during that year. A civil government may only be established in a pacified province, city or town.

2. the Americans only began organizing a civil government in 1900. Even with the establishment of the civil government with the Philippine Commission as the legislature, executive powers still resided in the Military Governor. Civil Government was only fully established on July 4, 1901 with William Howard Taft as Civil Governor.Angeles624 19:49, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Feel free to edit the articles as long as you can prove it. --- Tito Pao 21:22, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
The Baliuageños celebrated this on 1999, the centenary, there were a couple of old folks claiming their parents voted.
Some links: [1] (not really reliable), [2] (a travel website), [3] (a blog, but has the most detail and the most scholarly in tone), etc. You can find more by conducting a google search with the phrase "Baliuag 1899 election". --Howard the Duck 01:59, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
From the book Malolos: The Crisis of the Republic by Teodoro Agoncillo, p. 390:
...The following day, Bustos and Baliuag fell, and the Filipino defenders fled northward. At Baliuag, Lawton seized 150,000 bushels of rice and 265 tons of sugar and distributed them to the civilians. On May 7, he authorized the creation of the first Filipino local government under the Americans. General Field Orders No. 8, dated at Baliuag, May 7, said:
For the purposes of official and just representation of the inhabitants of this town with Military authorities, as well as for temporary convenience in restoring and maintaining order among the former, the citizens ere authorized to meet and elect a capitan municipal. The result of such meeting has been the selection of Señor Francisco Guerrero, who is therefore announced as Mayor and authorized to select a council and such other assistants or officers as may be necessary to properly administer municipal affairs. He will be accordingly respected and obeyed.
I'll cite other references I can find. — scorpion prinz 00:27, 22 April 2007 (UTC)


Those first elections are correct. But it should not be civil government but military government. By May 1899, Bulacan was already in American hands. In fact, the southern half of Pampanga was captured by May 4. Although the country was still at the height of the conflict, the revolutionary troops by this time, had already fled to the north, to Nueva Ecija and Tarlac. Ivanhenares 14:22, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Citatio nneded for Bulacan Foundation Date? In 2006..Josie Dela Cruz,then Governor of Bulacan asked Dr.Reynaldo Naguit,then director of Bulacan Center for Studies or CBS to do research to findi when is the true date for the Foundation of Bulacan as a Province.In 2008..the Center for Bulacan Studies presented their research to the Provincial Governor that..CBS have find documents mentioning "Provincia de Bulacan" as of 1578. so the Provincial Government of Bulacan enacted a resolution in January 2008 declaring August 15,1578 as Founding date of the Province.Now..why do such edtings to contest/sounds contrasting at the Province official foundation date? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tope110383 (talkcontribs) 23:48, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Santamaria bulacan.jpg[edit]

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

Splitting into multiple articles[edit]

I think the article is too long and needs to be split into multiple articles. Potential articles could be Tatak Bulakenyo, History of Bulacan (the history section could be replaced with a summary of its history while the details will be on the main history article), the Points of Interest could be moved somewhere (and needs cleaning up also). What do you think? Kleomarlo (talk) 05:41, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

The History section most certainly needs to be split out. I'm going to start by doing that then have a look at splitting out some of the other sections. Ideally this would be best done by an expert on the subject but since this is so long overdue so I'm going to give it a go. -France3470 (talk) 14:40, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
There is a lot of work needed to sort out the history section, and it is quite daunting - however, unless a start is made, it will never get done. I have made that start. I have moved the entire history section to History of Bulacan, and left a crude cut and paste summary, per WP:Summary style, in this article. Both the history section in this article, and History of Bulacan are going to need some work in terms of referencing and clarity. SilkTork *YES! 16:52, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Persons list clean-up[edit]

Too many names were added to this article, but the references for these are not cited, and in some cases it's not clear if these persons are notable enough for inclusion (most names are red links). Hence, I've cleaned up (and still am) the list of notable Bulakenos.

This is intended to be a transitory/provisionary clean-up. If you are planning to restore any of the names I've removed, please cite your sources, make sure that anyone else can verify these sources, and also check if the names are notable enough for inclusion in Wikipedia. Note that these measures are necessary because what may be common knowledge to your townmates or province-mates may not be so to other readers of the English Wikipedia. I've retained names that may appear on standard Philippine History textbooks or really, really notable celebs (e.g. Regine Velasquez, Angel Locsin, Lydia de Vega).

Questions, concerns...please head over to my talk page and fire away, let's work on improving our province's article. Thanks. --- Tito Pao (talk) 03:24, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

See Wikipedia:Manual of Style (embedded lists) for guidance on lists within articles. I have moved the list of schools from the article to this talkpage. It is an uncited list, and even if it was cited, is of dubious value in a general encyclopedia. SilkTork *YES! 16:52, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Start class[edit]

This is a poor quality article. It consists mainly of poorly presented lists. It has little organisation, and a reader has to work hard at getting any useful information out of it. I have moved it to start class. SilkTork *YES! 17:14, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
