Bonifacio Day

Today we celebrate the birth of Andres Bonifacio, the Katipunan leader who fought against the Spanish colonizers.  We usually celebrate the death of our national heroes like Jose Rizal and others but in the case of Bonifacio, his death was a tragic event in Philippine history.  On May 10, 1897, he was executed by the Katipunan for treason.
