|This Historical Park just outside of Torrijos town is home to the most
famous battle on Marinduque during the Philippine American War. This
battle is also in the top 10 of all the battles during this period in
Philippines. Although a peaceful setting today, it was not so in
September of 1900 as forces led by Maximo Abad surprised and
defeated Company F of the United States 29th Volunteers led by
Captain Deveraux Shields. The history behind this battle occupies
many pages of my website and to get a good feel of what happened at
Pulang Lupa you need to visit HERE after taking in the pictures below.
