No other towns in the Philippines can be linked to the great patriots and heroes in the country's history more than the City of
Malolos— "capital of the short-lived Philippine Republic". Such name as General Emilio Aguinaldo, Pedro A. Paterno, Dr. Jose P. Rizal, Marcelo H. del Pilar, Pio del Pilar, Gregorio del Pilar, Apolinario Mabini, Antonio Luna, Felipe Calderon, General Isidoro D. Torresand a host of others are forever engraved and enshrined in the annals of Philippine History, all of whom share one commonality - MALOLOS.
According to Blair and Robertson, the name “Li-han” or "Li Han" was the ancient Chinese name for Malolos, whose leaders bore the title of “Gat-Salihan” or Gatchalian (derived from "Gat sa Li-Han"). [ [The Philippine Islands, 1493-1898, by Emma Helen Blair and James A. Robertson, Manila, 1903-1909] ]
In 1580, eight years after
Maynilad(present_day Manila) was captured by the Spaniards from Rajah Solimanand Rajah Matanda, Spanish missionaries discovered a small settlement called Li Han, with 4,000 unbaptized souls. The settlement was named and founded as "Malolos" by the Augustinians under the direction of Fray Diego Ordoñez de Vivar. Later, after clearing forests and virgin lands, the settlement grew, and the population increased. After the construction of a big church, the place was made into a town. From the very beginning, Tagalog made up the majority of the Malolos populace. They were led by prominent families, among them the Gatsalians (Gatchalian), and the Manahans.
The name of Malolos was presumably derived from the Tagalog word "Paluslos", meaning " "downwards". The name resulted from a misunderstanding among the first Spanish missionaries who reached the place. Searching for inhabited places along the
CalumpitRiver, these priests came upon some natives of a riverside barrio(now Kanalate or Canalate). They asked for the name of the place. The natives, not knowing the Spanish tongue, answered that the flow of the river in that part was downstream -"paluslos"-, which the Spaniards pronounced "Malolos" or "Malulos". Corruption of the word through the years led to present "Malolos".
Malolos was once a part of the old pueblo or town of Bulakan, and then became an independent pueblo in 1673. [ [http://126.96.36.199/search?q=cache:nUrJQnYDFB8J:www.bulacan.gov.ph/bulacan/history.php+founding+of+the+town+of+malolos&hl=tl&ct=clnk&cd=5&gl=ph Municipality of Bulacan] ] In
August 31, 1859, the town was divided into three districts; ""Malolos", ""Barasaoin", and ""Santa Isabel" with respective capitanes municipales and parish priests. These towns were again reunited into a single municipality in 1903, while the two districts became barangays under the political jurisdiction of Malolos..
To cite all the historical events that transpired in Malolos, one could very well fill a good-sized book. The major events especially those that revolved around the first Republic, cannot be left unmentioned. Some of these are the petition of the women of Malolos, the establishment of the Constitutional Convention, drafting and ratification of the Malolos Constitution, and the inauguration of the first Philippine Republic.
The wealth of Malolos lies not only in its more than four thousand hectares of fertile rice lands and more than two thousand hectares of fishponds, but in the character of its people as well. Its people have long been known for their diligence and ingenuity. In early days, farming and fishing took up most of the poultry, farming, pigeon rising, carpentry and woodwork, and other profitable cottage industries and handicrafts. A major factor in Malolos growth and development was the opening of the
Manila- Dagupanrailways or "Ferrocaril de Manila-Dagupan" (Spanish) in April 1892. With the advent of the railroad came new ideas from Manila and other places. Another factor is Malolos proximity to industrial and business centers. Only 42 kilometers off from Manila, the town and its people are inevitable subjected to an influx of metropolitan thoughts.
In work methods and tools, it is estranged to find Malolos folk using a combination of the old and the new Ramshackle hops tremble to the whirl of modern electric-powered machines. Fishermen go out to the sea in the same dugouts their grandfathers used. Some of them have outboard motors. And handicraftsmen, woodworkers and weavers still follow the ageless techniques of their forefathers.
By virtue of "Public Law No. 88" of the Philippine Commission, Malolos became the "capital of the province of Bulacan" on
February 27, 1901.
Malolos was the site of the inauguration of
Joseph Estradaon June 30, 1998in Barasoain Churchas the President of the Republic of the Philippines.
It was in summer of 2004, the construction of the Malolos flyover marks a new milestone in their flourishing history being the first in the city. Part of the President's Bridge Program, the construction was undertaken in a record-breaking 60 days only according to the Department of Public Works and Highways. The facility is expected to solve the daily traffic jam at the place, which have become a bane to motorist and also to employees in both private and government offices in this city. This remarkable feat will fastrack not only the city's development in commerce and trade but its neighboring municipalities as well.
During July 28-30, 2008, the city was chosen to host the first National Conference for
Philippine-Spanish Relations. The conference's theme was "Philippine-Spanish Relations: Sharing Common History and Culture."
The Revolt of Ladia
In 1643, due to Spanish oppression throughout the country,
Pedro Landia, a native of Borneo, who claimed to be descendant of Rajah Matandaand later proclaimed himself as "Rajah ng mga Tagalog" (Rajah of the Tagalogs), instigated the people of Malolos to rise in arms against the Spanish rule. He was able to recruit a number of followers. But before he could carry out his plan, Friar Cristobal Enriquez had already entreated the people to remain loyal to the Fatherland, Spain. Later, Pedro Ladia was arrested and sent to Manila to be executed. [For the accounts of the attempted revolt, see Blair and Robertson, Vol.XXXVIII, p.98-99]
The Women of Malolos
It was a town of so many heroes and great men along its enclaves, among which are the 21
Women of Malolos. On December 12, 1888, 20 young women from the Chinese-mestizo families of Malolos, Bulacan–the Reyeses, Tantocos, Tanchangcos, Tiongsons, Uitangcoys, petitioned the newly-arrived Gov. Gen. Valeriano Weylerto allow the opening of a night school - at their own expense where they could learn to read and write Spanish, the language which would eradicate friar domination and put them in touch with liberal ideas current in Europe. With Weyler's blessing and over the objections of the friar curate, the school opened in early 1889. The audacity and the success of these women did not go unnoticed. But the women's greatest adulation came from Dr. Jose Rizalin his letter of February 22, 1889, ""Sa Mga Kababayang Dalaga Sa Malolos"." The Women of Malolos were of the breed who looked at far horizons and thought of country above self, who stood up for what is right and just over what is merely convenient, who planned and acted not only for the future and the next generation, who decisively acted on their mouthed good intentions.

The Malolos Republic
Malolos is the historical site of the constitutional convention of 1898 that led to the establishment of the
First Philippine Republic, the first republic in Asia, led by Emilio Aguinaldo. Malolos served as the capitalof the short-lived republic from 1898-1899. In 1899, after the Malolos Constitution was ratified, the "Universidad Literia de Filipinas" was established in Malolos, Bulacan. It offered Law as well as Medicine, Surgery and Notary Public; "Academia Militar" which was established on October 25, 1898; and The "Burgos Institute", an exclusive school for boys
Malolos Congress convened on
September 15, 1898at Barasoain Church. On the 18th, Aguinaldo proclaimed Malolos as the capital of the Philippines. The first important act of the Congress was the ratification on September 29, 1898of the independence proclamation of June 12, 1898at Kawit, Cavite. On October 19, 1898, by virtue of an act of Congress, the Universidad Literaria de Filipinas was established. It was in Malolos on December 20, 1898when Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo declared December 30of every year as a day of national mourning. The greatest achievement and for which the Malolos Congress was known was the framing of the Constitution, prepared by a committee headed by Felipe Calderon, was approved by the congress after amendments have been made on January 20, 1899, sanctioned by Aguinaldo the next day and promulgated on January 22. The last congressional act of the Malolos Congress was the inauguration of the Philippine Republic with Aguinaldo as the President on January 23, 1899, amidst the people’s jubilation. American forces captured Malolos on March 31, 1899.
Philippine-American War, Malolos was captured by the Americans through a bloody battle that led to the escape of Aguinaldo to San Fernando, Pampanga.
Balangay Apuy of the Katipunan
On the eve of
7 July 1892, the Katipunan was founded by Andres Bonifacio tegether with Ladislao Diwa, Deodato Arellano, Teodora Plata and Valentin Diaz in the house of Arellano is Azcaraga. The Katipunan fought against Spain for our independence. Many knew that there are many Katipuneros all over the country but few know their names. Bulacan was one of the 8 provinces declared by Governor-General Ramon Blanco as a state of war.
Balangay Apuy, chapter or “"balangay"” of Katipunan in Bulacan province was organized in March 1896. The earliest members of the Katipunan from Malolos were Isidoro Torres, Ramon de Leon and Luis Gatmaytan. They became members in March 1896 and, together with Doroteo Karagdag, they were authorized to organize chapters or "balangay" in Bulacan province.
As a result of their efforts, the "Balangay Apuy" was organized in Malolos with the following officials and members: Luis Gatmaytan, President; Ramon de Leon, Secretary; Victorino Gatmaytan, Treasurer; Isidoro Torres, Doroteo Karagdag, Damaso Kaluag, Vicente Villavicencio, Donato Teodoro, Dionicio Dimagiba, Maximino Borlongan, Agripino Buendia, members. Other members were Antonio Bautista, "Tagausig," Gregorio Santos, "Taliba" and Romualdo Concepcion, "Mabalasik."
In early 1896, there was also organized in the capital of Bulacan, a separatist organization affiliated with the Bonifacio-founded Katipunan. It was called Katipunan del Norte presided by Agustin Tantoko, coadjutor of Calumpit parish. It was most active in Bulacan province, especially around Malolos. Gabino Tantoko, a propietario from Malolos, was a member and so were Juan, Antonio, Ezequiel, all surnamed Tantoko, among others.
After the discovery of the Katipunan, the Malolos members were arrested and tortured, like the brothers Luis and Victorino Gatmaytan and Nicolas Buendia.
Later, the "Balangay Apuy" was reorganized and Isidoro became president. He easily headed the armed uprising in Malolos, and drove the Spanish forces in the decisive Battle of Malolos on
June 1, 1897.
It became that the municipality of Malolos was proposed to be a city in 1999 through "Republic Act No. 8754" entitled "An Act Converting the Municipality of Malolos in Bulacan Province into a Component City to be known as the City of Malolos" by former Representative, now Vice Governor
Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado(as its author) with efforts of former Malolos Mayor Restituto "Resty" Roque. The plebiscite was conducted on December 18, 1999. However, the conversion was rejected by the majority votes cast. As a result, a protest was filed impugning the results. Said protest was granted by the Second Division of COMELEC per Resolution No. Election Protest Case (EPC) 99-2, and became a city officially in October 8, 2002, and became final and executory on November 08, 2002.
Proposed Lone Congressional District of the City of Malolos
Through the years, the City of Malolos has grown and developed from a mere municipality to a key component city of Bulacan province. Being the known capital of Bulacan, the City of Malolos has a population of some 255,000 Bulakeños and has greatly progressed and developed as a local economy with major industries like agriculture, real estate, bag making, flowers and ornamental plants, food and food processing, garments, gifts, house ware and decors.
It cannot be doubted that the City of Malolos is in itself a strong political unit with a booming local economy. The City of Malolos, therefore, deserves to have its own separate congressional district to further sustain its continuing growth and development. This historic, bustling, and progressive city deserves an era of political and economic peace, independence, and prosperity, which can only take place if the City of Malolos is converted into a separate congressional district, having its own representative to congress who would advance its political and economic welfare in the national stage.
"Ang Malolos, mula noon hanggang ngayon, ay simbolo ng kadakilaan ng Pilipino, ng kanyang pagmamahal sa kalayaan at giting upang ipagtanggol ito. Nararapat Iamang na biyayaan ang Malolos ng sanying distrito upang magampanan nito ang papel bilang kanlungan ng mga bayani at puso ng progresibong lalawigan ng Bulakan." - Senador
