Information on the history of the Philippines from 1800- 1913 is presented. The Philippines was a Spanish colony, in which corruption in the church, bureaucracy, and ethnic discrimination increased in the 19th century. An elite group of "Filipinos" emerged, who were a mixed group of mestizos, indios, and Spaniards born in the archipelago. They saw themselves as representatives of a distinct Philippine nation and spearheaded the movement for the overthrow of the Spanish government.
