Battle of Alapan Site

Paved the way for the birth of the First Philippine Republic. It is where the Philippine Flag sewn in Hongkong by Marcella Agoncillo received its Baptism on Fire on May 28, 1898. Located at Alapan I Elementary School, the battle site is a 10-15 minute drive from the town proper.  The site of this marker was highlighted by a 104 feet tall flagpole where the Philippine Flag waves proudly. The marker is set atop three large rocks each encrusted with pasted cement. On the center of the rock is a statue of a woman boldly holding the Philippine Flag.  The site was declared by the National Historical Institute as a national historical landmark thru Resolution Number 5 Series of 1993 signed on May 26, 1993.
