Second Battle of Bud Dajo

The Second Battle of Bud Dajo was a was a counter insurgency action fought by American soldiers against native Moros in December 1911, during the Moro Rebellion phase of the Philippine-American War.

On November 11, 1909, Major General John J. Pershing assumed his duties as governor of the Moro province. On September 8, 1911, he issued Executive Order No. 24, which ordered the complete disarmament of all Moros; American forces had been plagued with juramentado and amok attacks and Pershing saw total disarmament as the solution. The deadline for disarmament was December 1, 1911.

The attempted enforcement of this order brought about the Second Battle of Bud Dajo. In December, 1911, an estimated 1500 Moros fortified the top of the extinct volcano. Pershing, through negotiations, succeeded in persuading the majority of the assembled Moros to return home. The remaining Moro forces, led by a chieftain named Jailani, were either killed or captured in the battle, which lasted five days.

Famous quotes containing the words battle and/or bud:

    ... the big courageous acts of life are those one never hears of and only suspects from having been through like experience. It takes real courage to do battle in the unspectacular task. We always listen for the applause of our co-workers. He is courageous who plods on, unlettered and unknown.... In the last analysis it is this courage, developing between man and his limitations, that brings success.
    Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)

    the bud packed
    tight with its miracle swayed
    stiffly on breaths
    of air, moved

    as though impelled
    by stirrings within itself.
    Robert Earl Hayden (1913–1980)
