F. Y. I. ----- A book came out in early 1980, "Sitting in Darkness, Americans in the Philippines, (ISBN 0-14-008992-6)" by David Haward Bain. Bain is apparently a fan of Mark Twain, hence the title. It is about how Col. Frederick Funston captured General Aguinaldo at Palanan with immense help from Macabebes and Filipino turncoats. The book mentions that Funston was slated to lead American forces in Europe in WW 1 but he died of a heart attack and General Pershing, also a veteran in the Philippine American War, took Funston's place. I found the book a nice supplement to the stories told by the pictures below. A review of Bain's book by the Philadelphia Inquirer looked very appropriate: "... combination of historical romance and contemporary adventure..." Fred Natividad Livonia, Michigan
