An exhibition to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the return of U.S. troops to the Philippines and the Battle of Manila in 1945. This exhibition, co-sponsored by the Ortigas Foundation Library and PHIMCOS, presented materials on the war and liberation not previously seen by the public.
This catalogue covers the period from 1898 when the First Philippine Republic was established to 1907 when the First Philippine National Assembly was convened. The establishment of the First Philippine Republic marked the culmination of the Spanish rule in the country, and although it was short-lived, its establishment and the ensuing events played a pivotal role in the eventual fulfillment of the aspirations of the Filipinos in self-determination.
During the early days under Spain, the Philippines was at the center of commercial trade in the region. Consequently navigators required sea charts and maps to reach the Asian markets, particularly the part of Manila, because of important and lucrative Galleon Trade between Spain and Manila passing through the port of Acapulco, Mexico. No sooner did the Manila Gelleon Trade commence in 1565, and which lasted 250 years, up to circa 1815, so did the mapping of the Philippines.
The British Occupation of the Philippines, which was mainly the occupation of the City of Manila and Cavite, lasted for less than 2 years, from September 1762 to May 1764. The British presence in our country, although brief, was a significant and interesting episode in our history.
