BRIEF HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF BULACAN

The history of the Province from Spanish occupation has been replaced with events worthy of recollection. As early as the time of the coming of Legaspi  to concur manila with the two of his subordinates officers. Martin de Goiti and Juan Salcedo, the Bulekanos thru their seafaring Brothers from Hagonoy showed their instinctive love of ountry by helping Raja Soliman, King of Manila, fight the Battle of Bangkusay Channel.


                The history began when a small settlement of fishermen lived along the oast of manila bay before the coming of Spaniards. Later on, these settlers became farmers after moving inward as they disovered that the land in the interior part was fertile and very much drained in the networks of Rivers and streams. These settlers grew and flourished into large and prosperous settlement now known as the province of Bulacan.


                It is believed that flowers bloomed in the region when the Spaniards came. Because of these sprawling green orchids, vegetable and profusely flowering plants, as well as the beautiful women, this lovely land had come to be called Bulacan as sort of shortened termed for “Bulak-lakan” and or a derivative of the word “Bulak” (kapok) which abound in the province even before the Spaniards came.


                The signing of Pact of Biak-na-Bato in 1897 was a Brilliant chapter in the history of Bulacan. However, the crowning glory of the series of historical events in the province was the establishment of the capital of the First Philippine republic in Malolos. The Malolos Church and Barasoain Church will be both remembered as the executive headquarters of President Aguinaldo and as the legislative, from September 10, 1898 to March 29, 1899. It was also in Malolos that famous and historical document, the Malolos Constitution, was drafter and ratified.


                Bulaan is also the cradle of noble heroes, of great men and women. The early people of Bulacan, being descendant of freedom loving race, had raised in revolt like their others brothers in other parts of the ountry. Bulacan was one of the eight provinces which rallied behind Katipunan’s call for all-out insurrection against the Spanish tyranny in the late 19th century. It produced the del Pilars, Balagtas, Tecson, Valenzuela, Toress, Estrella, Ponce, Sandico, Panganiban, and many others. The Bulakenos take fierce pride in their history and tradition and they live by these glories. By these glories, they are quick to display leadership and seek fullest commitment to national goals.
