The Balangiga, Samar Massacre

"The Balangiga massacre, as it is known in the Philippines, or the Balangiga affair, as it is known in the United States,[5] was an incident in 1901 during the Philippine-American War where more than forty American soldiers were killed in a surprise guerrilla attack in the town of Balangiga on Samar island. This incident was described as the United States Army's worst defeat since the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876.[5][6][7] Filipinos regard the attack as one of their bravest acts in the war." -- Wikipedia
