TEST YOURSELF: Can You Recognize All 33 Of These Pinoy Historical Events?

I’ve always loved Philippine history. And as I grew older, my love for the subject became deeper in the same way couples transition from the honeymoon stage into something more serious.

Gone are the days when I look at history as pointless memorization of events, people, and other boring details. I have realized that Philippine history is full of interesting stories. Some may be tragic, but most are enlightening.

It’s a story of our rise and fall as a nation, of people who have taught us that we all can make a difference no matter where we came from, and of stupid mistakes that our present generation needs to learn from.

History is not just about looking back but reflecting on how far (or behind) we’ve come as a nation. It’s a lesson that the younger Filipinos need to embrace. And the first step towards achieving that is to make Philippine history more interesting. I hope this simple quiz will help in the same way our articles have changed how you look at our past.
