|144k||Filipino insurgent surrender, 1902. The first lighter load of insurgents of Filipino General Guevara's army approaching the wharf at 4 pm on 26 May 1902 at Catbalogan, Samar, where they formally surrendered.
The insurgent soldiers had been brought to Catbalogan by the collier USS Nanshan and were transferred there to lighters. The small gunboat just beyond the lighter may be Basco, which assisted in the operation. This surrender ended the guerilla warfare in the Philippines that began in 1899.
