The Bud Dajo Massacre in 1906: A little Summary

It was a Moro name Pala who ran amok in British Borneo, set up his camp in Sulu which resulted in the chain of events in 1906. Later then, Sulu civilians at Bud Dajo were defying American occupation. On March 5, to the early morning of March 6, 1906, there was a massive artillery founding the crater as per order by General Leonard Wood. 2000 went uphill and local account says 1500 Filipinos killed and on the US side, 18 died, 52 wounded.

According to historians, the "massacre" could have been avoided by cutting food supply , forcing the rebels to come down but Gen. Leonard Wood needed the battle of Bud Dajo so badly to justify his military standing. Accounts also pointed out that it was a necessary action before it gets sympathy from the neighboring community.

Jolo Sulu Boardwalk

Local assert that there was an issue on the economic aspect of the sulu sultanate by diverting the trading route bypassing Sulu, instead directly anchoring over Davao and Manila. Another version says the US would be adopting a foreign policy to commit genocide. Both adaptations might lead to the unfortunate event in 1906.

Afraid of "Bangkaw", Gen. Pershing, who succeeded Gen. Wood, ordered the mass production of caliber 45 arm gun to suppress noncompliant locals. not a historian, nabasa ko lang sa kanto at sa kapapanood ng EJK hearing. dont worry. haha.anyway, you could believe anything written from our books pa naman...credits to Abraham Idjirane.
