A Brief History of Philippine Independence

Historically, the Philippines has had three independence days, but the nation officially celebrates only one. The most recognized date is June 12, 1898. On this day, General Emilio Aguinaldo announced independence from Spanish rule in Kawit, Cavite, which had lasted over 300 years.

The second independence occurred during World War II on October 14, 1943. The Empire of Japan set up the Second Republic with Jose P. Laurel as president, echoing the short-lived First Republic of 1901 that ended when the U.S. took over.

The third occurred on July 4, 1946. Near the close of World War II in the Pacific, the U.S. regained control of Japan. On their own Independence Day, July 4, the U.S. granted the Philippines independence, symbolizing America's commitment to their promise and their guiding principles of freedom and responsibility.

Starting in 1946, the nation marked Independence Day on July 4. However, in 1962, President Diosdado P. Macapagal changed the celebration date to June 12.
