The anti-Spanish revolution in Cebu breaks out with a skirmish on Valeriano Weyler Street (now Tres de Abril) in Labangon between Spanish Guardia Civil and Katipuneros armed with nothing but bolos, pointed bamboo poles “and perhaps five riffles and shotguns.” The rebel’s drive back the Guardia Civil and take control of the city.

In the evening of this same day, rebels also capture the town of Talisay.
