Republic of Bohol
During the Spanish regime, two significant revolts occurred in Bohol.
Boholanos struggled unsuccessfully to provide resistance against the Japanese forces.
Bohol was later liberated by American troops on April 11.
Bohol had a long history of uprisings, throughout the Spanish, American, and Japanese regime.
They have long envisioned Bohol as it's own republic, independent of it's own national government.
Bohol is also the home province of the fourth President of the Republic of the Philippines,
Carlos Polistico Garcia (1957-1960) who was born in the municipality of Talibon.
Enjoy Bohol with me!!
In my own personal observation,the Boholanos are the most religious folks in the country.
It is evident at the license plates of their own public transportation, the tricycles or motorcab.
The chief of the local government set out a rule to spread the Word (bible phrases),
instead of witty naughty punchlines.
Living in full contact with nature, Bohol are borne environmentalists.
They respect and revere their natural forests, that people caught cutting trees,
even in their own backyard, gets a lifetime penalty.
These are just my personal observations of the island as a local visitor and native.
My dear fellow Boholanos, please feel free to correct me if I have fed wrong information.
I am always open for correction!
