10 Remarkable Things About Andres Bonifacio

 Andres Bonifacio Y de Castro also known as Andres Bonifacio was the leader of the ‘Kataastaasang Kagalanggalangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan’ (KKK) or Katipunan. He was born in Tondo, Manila on November 30, 1863 and died in May 10, 1897 at the age of 33.
            The following are some remarkable information about the hero:

1. Upon baptism he was named after a saint on whose feast he was born, Andrew the Apostle. (Wikipedia.com)

2. He was arrested and executed by his own men who joined with Emilio Aguinaldo in the mountains of Maragondon, Cavite on May 10, 1897. (Blogspot.com)

3. Historians believe that the context of Bonifacio’s assassination has never been fully explained and that the questionable convention formed part of the systemic problems that continue to prevail in the country. (Interaksyon.com)

4. He wrote the famous poem entitled “Pag-ibig sa Tinubuang Lupa” under the pseudonym Agapito Bagumbayan. (Blogspot.com)

5. He put out a newspaper called the ‘Kalayaan’, or “Freedom.” Over the course of 1896, under his leadership, Katipunan grew from about 300 members at the beginning of the year to more than 30,000 in July. (Asianhistory.com)

6. He used the word “Tagalog” as a collective term for all people born and raised in the Philippines. (Interaksyon.com)

7. Some historians believe that Bonifacio was not only the Father of the Katipunan but also the first President of the Philippines, before Emilio Aguinaldo. (Asianhistory.com)

8. Bonifacio was married twice: first to a certain Monica who died of leprosy, then he married Gregoria de Jesus of Caloocan in 1893. They had one son named Andres who died of smallpox in infancy. (Yahoo.com)

9. There were two Katipunan provincial chapters in Cavite that became rival factions: the Magdalo, headed by Emilio Aguinaldo’s cousin Baldomero Aguinaldo, and the Magdiwang, headed by Mariano Alvarez, uncle of Bonifacio's wife. (Wikipedia.com)

10. Historians describe Bonifacio as a military strategist specializing in guerrilla warfare. (Interaksyon.com)

Andres Bonifacio was indeed a great hero just like our national hero Jose Rizal. Also, I personally believe that he must be known as the first president of the Republic of the Philippines instead of Emilio Aguinaldo who arrested and executed him for charges of sedition and treason against Aguinaldo’s government, and alleged conspiracies to murder Aguinaldo.

Sinulat niya ang Pag-Ibig sa Tinubuang Lupa na nagpapatunay na siya ay tunay na bayani dahil Minahal niya ng lubos ang ating bansang sinilangan.Nalaman ko rin kung saan nanggaling ang kanyang pangalan. Nalaman ko rin n siya pala ang pinakaunang presidente ng pilinas ukol sa aking nakalap na impormasyon. Nalaman ko rin na may asawa siya At Marami pa akong natutunan ukol dito sa artikulo na ito .

Ngayon May tanong ako sa inyo matapos niyong basahin ang artikulo na ito Sino ba talaga ang Mas maraming nagawa sa ating bayan at Ang tunay na Bayani si Andres Bonifacio ba O si Joser Protacio Rizal .?

Habang Nagbabasa ako nito, Bigla kong naalala ang mga tulang iniwan sa atin ng ating bayani na si Andres Bonifacio gaya ng Pagibig sa Tinubuang lupa. Hinihikayat niya tayong mahalin din natin ang ating bayan gaya ng kanyang ginawa. Nakipaglaban sya sa mga mananakop hanggang kamatayan. Nalaman ko rin ang talambuhay ni Andres Bonifacio na mababa lang pala ang kanyang pinagaralan hindi gaya ni Jose Rizal.

May isa katanungan lamang po ako mga kababayan, sa inyong palagay ano o sino ang kanyang naging inspirasyon sa pagsulat nya ng kanyang tula na Pag ibig sa Tinubuang Lupa

my comment

It is just right to consider Andres Bonifacio must be known as the First President of the Philippines rather than Emilio Aguinaldo because as a Filipino he did his best for our nation. He also leads the Filipinos at the times that we are under the colonizers. He also made a big contribution for the freedom of our nation. I think nothing is wrong to know him as our first president.
