The Philippines  1898-1989  1903-1905  1908-1910


"One night in February 1899 the Filipino insurrection started and lasted for nearly three years.  The 14th, with a strength of 16 officers and 707 men took its part in the opening skirmishes.  It assisted in the capture of Block House No. 14 on Feb. 5, 1899.  Most of the fighting that followed was similar to that which the personnel had engaged in during the Indian wars in the 1880s and 90s.  Tropic heat, torrential rain, deep mud and jungle fever were the allies of the insurrectionist with his bob.  Actual battles were rare and except for the major engagements at Manila, Laguna de Bay, Zapote, and Cavite, minor skirmishes, ambushes, long marches and reconnaissances occupied the Fourteenth Infantry of 1899."
