Today in History: Kaarawan ni Bonifacio
Commemorates the birth of national hero Andrés Bonifacio on November 30, 1863. Bonifacio is remembered on his birthday, rather than the date of his death, 10 May 1897, for historical reasons. Unlike Rizal and other heroes who died at the hands of foreigners, Bonifacio was executed by the government. Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo ordered his execution, as he was considered an enemy of the state after the events at the Tejeros Convention. Often conflated with National Heroes’ Day.
