Battle of Imus

Also known as Siege of Imus, this battle is the turning point of Philippine revolution. Its victory helped embolden the Filipinos to fight for freedom when the revolutionary forces were suffering several defeats from the Spaniards. The victorious battle, led by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, with support of the Imusenos and their leader Col. Jose Tagle, took place on September 1-3, 1896 at Isabel Bridge that was named after the Queen of Spain and contributed to the formation of the “Little Republic of Cavite.”

The site of the Battle of Imus in life-size, nine-figure bronze mural and the Bridge of Isabel II are located at Barangay Poblacion I-B. The bridge also serves as an important access point for those coming to Imus through the nearby City of Bacoor.
