About 19 Martyrs of Aklan

The Nineteen Martyrs of Aklan were Filipino loyalists in Kalibo, Aklan, Philippines who were executed by musketry, for participating with the Katipunan amid the Philippine Revolution against Spain. General Francisco del Castillo, a nearby partner of Andres Bonifacio. This Aklanon Katipunero was entrusted by Bonifacio to build up Katipunan in Panay Island. On March 17, 1897, the youthful loyalist, protector of freedom and pioneer of the Aklan revolutionists was killed by a professional killer amid a battle in the present-day Pastrana Park.

The less than ideal demise of General del Castillo had flagged the finish of the significant battle for flexibility in Aklan. His dear companions, partners and troopers were compelled to surrender arms, some because of the guarantee of accepting reprieve. These Nineteen Men, powerless from yearning and thirst and racked with rain, were bound together and constrained into a dark opening of a stone cell on Amadeo Street now Nineteen Martyrs Street in Kalibo. Here their hands were manacled and a long bamboo post was gone through their bolted arms over their damaged backs.

At that point they were hung high up against the mass of the phone, with their backs to the shooting line, and amid the primary long periods of March 23, they were shot to death. The rare sorts of people who did not pass on right away were bayoneted. That was a night of murkiness and fear in Kalibo. Be that as it may, such guarantee was immediately broken. So on the game changing day of March 23, 1897, the Martyrs of Aklan were executed.
