George Percival Scriven:
An American in Bohol, The Philippines, 1899-1901
An On-line Archival Collection

"Covering the advance of Filipino insurgents"

Scriven describes the people of Bohol as protesting the occupation of the Americans, but not rebelling against the occupying forces. This photo depicts an aspect of the war that did occur between the U.S. Army and the "insurgents" who forcibly rebelled against colonization.

From "Scenes taken in the Philippines and on the Pacific" by J.D. Givens, Duke University Special Collections.
