Aguinaldo Celebrates Bday in Lubuagan

24 January 1900. Emilio Aguinaldo turns 31 in Lubuagan, Kalinga  following a frantic escape from the pursuing Americans who had relentlessly tailed him from La Union and Ilocos and all the way through four present-day Cordillera provinces -- Ifugao, Mt. Province, Abra, and Kalinga. After establishing his seat of government in Lubuagan until May 17 of that same year,  he was forced to flee Kalinga with the enemy closing in from all directions and again narrowly escaped to Palanan, Isabela where he was finally captured on 23 March 1901.
