Cagayan de Misamis, now known as Cagayan de Oro City, was the Capital town of the Segundo Distritc de Misamis in northern Mindanao at the close of the Spanish regime in the Philippines. In December 1898, just after Spain signed the Treaty of Paris with the United States, Misamis organized its first Filipino local government which President Emilio Aguinaldo sanctioned. This revolutionary local government was formally proclaimed on January 10, 1899 in solemn ceremonies outside the Casa Real of Cagayan de Misamis. The Filipino officials ruled uninterrupted until the following year, 1900. On January 16, 1900, learning that America had already taken control of many provinces in Luzon, the Citizens of Cagayan de Misamis gathered and decided to resist the impending American invasion of the town. The people of the town believed that they could no longer capitulate once again under the yoke of another colonial power. Hundreds of its citizens signed what was known as the Club Popular Pact of Resistance which called for an armed warfare against the American invaders under the cri-de-guerre "We fight to protect our homes and our liberty," Read more.
