Synopsis

THE HILLS OF SAMPALOC recounts the opening actions during the early hours of the Philippine American War in the Sampaloc-Santa Mesa district in the eastern part of the city of Manila. The spot where the first shot was fired is identified as a side road that is now Calle Sosiego (not, as is commonly believed, San Juan Bridge), and the events (probably accidental) leading up to it that night, as well as the calculated American attacks the following day are described in detail, based on official documents (Filipino and American), news-paper reports, eyewitness accounts and private correspondence.
