Came from  Tagalog words “Pulang Lupa”, this historical site depicts the bloody battle between the Filipino forces under Lt. Col. Maximo Abad and the American forces under Capt. Deverieux Shields on September 13, 1900. Optimistically, the Filipinos won in this battle  in which Abad’s men defeated the American force.
