Philippines: Spanish-American War, 1898 [Author: Alfred F. Kugel]. The United States declared war on Spain on 21st April 1898, and an expeditionary force was assembled in preparation to the occupation of the Philippines. An armistice was signed on 12th August, but a Filipino insurrection led by Emilio Aguinaldo required the presence of a substantial American military force, which finally defeated the rebels on 16th April 1902.
