History

Prehistory 1-icon

The first inhabitants of the Bataan peninsula are the indigenous 1-icon Ayta Magbeken tribes, who are one of the first 1-icon Negrito ancestors of present-day Filipinos. Later on, 1-icon (division) Tagalog communities from southern Luzon migrated to parts of Bataan and the Ayta Magbeken migrated towards the mountain areas of Bataan by the end of the 16th century.

Colonial Period 1-icon (colony) Spanish-Empire-icon Dutch Empire-icon

In 1647, Dutch naval forces landed in country in an attempt to libarate the islands from Spanish-Empire-icon Spanish Empireball but then The Dutch massacred the people of Abucay in Bataan.

World War II 1-icon (colony) Murica-icon Japanese-Empire-icon

Bataanball was featured prominently during World War II. Prior to the 1941 Japanese invasion, the US Army stored nearly 1,000,000 US gallons (3,800 m3) of gasoline there.

Shortly after the Japanese Army invaded the country in December 1941, the combined US and Filipino forces were being gradually overrun and General Douglas MacArthur moved his troops to the Bataan Peninsula in an attempt to hold out until a relief force could be sent from Murica-icon Murica. Japanese-Empire-icon Japanese forces started a siege of the peninsula on January 7, 1942, and launched an all-out assault on April 3, a few months after the Battle of the Points. The most brutal event of Bataanball's history was when the majority of the Murica-icon American and Philippines-icon Filipino forces surrendered on April 9 1942 and were forced to march more than 100 kilometres from Bataan to Capas, Tarlac, which became known as the Bataan Death March.
