Iloilo, The Most Noble City: History And Development 1566-1898
|Publisher||New Day Publishers|
|Author||Policarpo F. Hernandez|
Uniquely, the book gives a wealth of historical data on Iloilo City from 1566 to 1898, and situates it in the context of the history of elegiac Panay as well as that of revolutionary Philippines.
Notably, the book mentions the story of the Ilongo Volunteers fighting against the Katipunan (hence Queen Maria Cristina of Spain calling it La Muy Noble Ciudad), growth of the sugarcane and textile industries, and the emergence of Graciano Lopez Jaena and the Propaganda Movement.
