Andres Bonifacio Biography, Picture, Death and Quote

Here are some facts regarding Andres Bonifacio including his biography, pictures, death and quotes.

AndrĂ©s Bonifacio y de Castro (November 30, 1863 – May 10, 1897) was a Filipino revolutionary leader and one of the main leaders of the Philippine Revolution against Spanish colonial rule in the late 19th century. He is regarded as the "Father of the Philippine Revolution" and one of the most influential national heroes of his country. A Freemason, Bonifacio was the leading founder of the Katipunan organization which aimed to start an independence movement against Spain.



Bonifacio then set out to install a rival government several days later in Naik, drawing up documents of his own. As a countermeasure, the government under Aguinaldo ordered the arrest of Bonifacio. In the following skirmish, his camp was surrounded, Ciriaco, one of his brothers was killed and Bonifacio was wounded in the arm and in the neck, though eyewitness accounts on Bonifacio's side attest that he did not fight back himself. He and his other brother Procopio were captured, and his wife narrowly escaped rape. Weak and lying on a stretcher, he was brought to Naik, where he stood trial, accused of treason against the government and conspiring to murder Aguinaldo.

Bonifacio was found guilty and recommended to be executed along with his brother. Aguinaldo commuted the sentence to deportation on May 8, 1897, but two generals, both former supporters of Bonifacio, upon learning of this, persuaded him to withdraw the order to preserve unity among the revolutionaries. They were supported by other leaders. The Bonifacio brothers were executed on May 10, 1897 in the mountains of Maragondon.
