Arthur MacArthur Jr. and Emilio Aguinaldo

Wednesday, December 13, 2023

In 1901, during the Philippine-American War, the Governor-General of the Philippines, Brigadier General Arthur MacArthur, Jr., father of Douglas MacArthur, approved a daring plan by Brigadier General Frederick Funston to capture Philippine revolutionary leader General Emilio Aguinaldo. Once Aguinaldo was in custody, Arthur MacArthur persuaded him to swear allegiance to the United States and to use his influence to help end the war. What do we know about the discussions between the two men? How did they see the future of the Philippines? How did this event influence Douglas MacArthur’s vision of Philippine independence? Join MacArthur Memorial historians Jim Zobel and Amanda Williams for a virtual discussion of these questions on December 13, 2023, at 12PM EST. The discussion will stream live on the MacArthur Memorial's Facebook page.
