A photograph of the scene earlier today, January 11, 1897, when the execution of thirteen convicted revolutionaries was carried out at Bagumbayan Field.
As of 6:00AM December 30, 1896 Jose Rizal has been removed from his cell by Spanish troops and is on the march to Bagumbayan. A crowd has formed there, mostly Spanish. A few Filipinos are in attendance. Still awaiting confirmation of which members of the Rizal clan are here.
A source within Fort Santiago tells Diario that Lieutenant Luis Taviel de Andrade joined Rizal for breakfast. Rizal was given three hard boiled eggs, he ate two. The third he threw into a corner exclaiming: “This is for the poor rats! Let them have their fiesta too!”
