In 1898, America’s victory over Spanish forces in the Philippines suddenly thrust the United States onto the global stage. It also drew the country into a more complicated conflict with the very people it claimed to be liberating.




As the U.S. expanded its occupation of the Philippines, American soldiers drove Filipino rebels deeper into the countryside.
