The Republic of Negros was a short lived revolutionary republic established on the Philippine island of Negros, Visayas at the tail end of the 19th century. On November 5th, 1898, the Negrenses led by local sugar baron Aniceto Lacson y Ledesma rose in revolt against the Spanish authorities, marching to the capital of Bacolod and surrounding the city with imitation cannons and rifles made of bamboo. Fooled into thinking the rebels were in far greater than their actual number, the Spaniards agreed to surrender without a fight. From there revolutionaries established their provisional republic, which would last until the following year with the arrival of the Americans.

Aniceto Lacson[]

Aniceto Lacson y Ledesma was a Filipino revolutionary general, sugar baron, and businessman. The fifth of seven children, his family migrated to the island of Negros when he was still a child. He studied commerce at the Ateneo Municipal de Manila along with classmates such as Juan Araneta and José Rizal, where he met several important figures of the Katipunan and forged a secret blood compact with Andrés Bonifacio. Lacson led the revolutionary forces in their takeover of Negros in November, 1898, and ruled as President until March of 1899.

Dawn of Man[]

Greetings, Your Excellency - Aniceto Lacson y Ledesma, sugar baron turned President of the revolutionary Republic of Negros. Under the careful administration of businessmen such as yourself, the island of Negros became a wealthy and prosperous region of the Spanish Philippines. As the Tagalog Katipuneros began their uprising in the closing years of the 19th century, sympathy for their cause began to spread among the sugar planters. By 1898 you had joined the Katipuneran and were marching to the city of Bacolod, bluffing the garrison with decoy artillery and bringing Spanish rule in Negros to an end. Your Republic of Negros would last until the arrival of the Americans the following year.
