If I remember seeing the five-peso bill correctly, the text there (in Tagalog) refers to the First Philippine Republic as Unang Republika Pilipina, which I put up in the article, but was later reverted. Just wanting to check now if I can change it back. --Sky Harbor19:22, 22 July 2006 (UTC) 1. 1.1. I don't have an old 5-peso bill with me but you're probably correct. However, Unang Republika Pilipina sounds Spangalog (Spanish-Tagalog) for Primera Republica Filipina. I think Unang Republika ng Pilipinas is more grammatically correct. --Pula Bughaw15:12, 31 July 2006 (UTC) 1. 1.1. 1.1.1. There's a picture of one in the Philippine peso billsarticle, but this was the text in the plaque issued by the National Historical Committee according to the five-peso bill (I have one myself): 1. 1.1. 1.1.1. 184.108.40.206.

Hi! I have some reference material on the First Philippine Republic and the cast of characters. I just have to type it up and post it. Maybe this weekend. Pictures will be a little harder to come by though. I do know that the picture of the Malolos Congress that's posted is NOT the only picture of the event. I think I can get hold of a picture of Aguinaldo as he was arriving at the churchyard. --Pula Bughaw15:12, 31 July 2006 (UTC) 1. Good idea! You may remove the only picture that is in existence description if you can get a hold of more pictures. And maybe you can help on the other to-do's. -- Emir21407:39, 2 August 2006 (UTC)
Howard, I don't think we need to specify Gen. Trias was a general in his cabinet listing. As in the case of Aguinaldo, the rank of general is subordinate to that of his civilian position. For example, Baldomero Aguinaldo was also a general and in later cabinets, Basilio Valdes was a general and in the Quezon and Osmena war cabinets, but the generaliship is not relevant to the civilian office. Gareon07:36, 29 October 2006 (UTC) 1. Notice that I merely removed the "Gen." out of the [[ and ]] which made Mariano Trias red-linked. --Howard the Duck09:46, 30 October 2006 (UTC) there are lot of things we need to know about the First Republic because it started all in here where our first president make this law to protect our country and meet our freedom. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 03:37, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
The infobox development is complete. Instead, you may help on the "History" section. - Emir21408:57, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
Can somebody add the dates on the capitals. It will be assumed that all 4 were capitals at the same time. There had to be more historical capitals, like little towns when Aguinaldo's government was retreating. Also update those found at List of historical national capitals. --Howard the Duck09:46, 30 October 2006 (UTC) Howard, I don't know if "General Aguinaldo slept here" makes a place a capital. It seems from what the books say that the government would have had to "officially" settle in a place to make that the provisional capital of the country.Gareon12:55, 30 October 2006 (UTC) 1. While attending a quiz bee at UP, there was question on national capitals, and it had several unnotable towns (I remembered it was on Pangasinan). As long as Aguinaldo that the was the capital city of the First Republic, that'll be enough proof. --Howard the Duck13:45, 30 October 2006 (UTC) I consulted some sources.

The green color of the map must not shed the whole map of the Philippine archipelago at that time, The Western portions of Mindanao are composed of an independent sultanate "THE SULTANATE OF SULU". thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 07:10, 4 January 2009 (UTC) 1. Hmmm... There is an article on Sultanate of Sulu, though a quick look at it didn't give me much understanding of either the territorial extent or the territorial development timeline. I don't know much about this area, but it may be relevant that Nu’ain Bin Abdulhaqq, an official of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), contends that celebrating June 12, 1898 (a date earlier than the December 10, 1898 signing date of the Treaty of Paris) as the date of Philippine independence provides the pretext for Moro independence. 1.1.

Should there be a criticism section, if historical critism can be found from reliable source references? --RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 12:47, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
There is a discussion related to this article in progress at Talk:Philippine–American War#First Philippine Republic: Insurgent?. Some editors of this article might want to contribute to that discussion. If the discussion grows much, it would probably make sense to continue it here rather than there. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill)05:42, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
I've made some edits final paragraph of the lead section. The second sentence of the final paragraph was a run-on sentence reading as follows: There are several problems here, e.g., (1) the dictatorial government didn't come into existence until 18 June, (2) the revolutionary government didn't come into existence until 23 June, (3) the Philippine Declaration of Independence didn't proclaim a republic, (4) the republic didn't come into existence until January 22, 1899, when the Malolos Constitution was promulgated. I've rewritten that sentence and the one following into several separate sentences and cited supporting sources. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill)06:51, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
In this edit, I removed some longstanding text about the Philippine Declaration of Independence from the article from the Philippine-American War section because that declaration was made prior to the establishment of the First Philippine Republic, by or on behalf of a dictatorial government which had been proclaimed but not yet established at the time, before the Philippine-American War began; it declared independence from Spain, not the US. Assertions in the removed text re Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao, and Sulu, if supportable, might be appropriate for other articles but their relevance here was unclear as presented. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill)03:48, 21 January 2012 (UTC) Here, I've removed some more confusion. Miguel Malvar (not Macario Sakay) assumed the presidency of the insurgent Philippine Republic government after Aguinaldo was captured. The Tagalog Republic was separate, later, and different.
