Waller and his men garnered during their heroic attempts to break the Boxer's 55-day siege of Peking were short-lived. The U.S. military forces had been involved in counterinsurgency operations in the Philippines for several years, but after a successful campaign on the island of Luzon, only Samar and Batangas remained hostile.
