US General & Staff in Front of Governor's Palace in Batangas, 1900

The colorized picture below shows Brigadier General Theodore Schwann and his staff in front of the Palace of the Governor in the then-town of Batangas on 17 January 1900. This was right after the town’s capture, which did not take much in terms of effort because resistance by Filipino insurgents was minimal.

The Americans had proceeded to the town after having been through the town of Lipa, thus completing the capture of Batangas and enabling the United States Army to set up garrisons. The capture of Lipa is described below in this article: “The Capture and Looting of Lipa by US Troops in 1900 during the Fil-American War.”
