Dedication

To the people of Balangiga, Samar, then and now. . .

To the officers and men of Company C, Ninth U.S. Infantry, and their descendants. . .

They were all warriors that bloody day, on both sides,  and they deserve  our honor and respect.

My hope is that this account will in some small way enhance understanding on both sides of a bitter argument that has continued for one hundred fifteen years.
