ANDRES BONIFACIO

Andres Bonifacio was orphaned at age 14. He supported his 5 siblings by selling paper fans, bamboo canes, and later working as a messenger and warehouse keeper.

He and his brother Procopio were arrested for sedition in April 1897 and sentenced to death by the revolutionary government led by Emilio Aguinaldo.

Aguinaldo initially commuted the verdict and recommended that the Bonifacio brothers be exiled to an isolated island in Cavite. However, upon the advice of 2 generals, he changed his mind and signed the death sentence. On May 10, 1897, Andres and his brother Procopio were shot at Mount Nagpatong in Maragondon, Cavite.
