IN a departure from past observances, the nation will remember today the 106th anniversary of the first shot of the Filipino-American War not at the foot of the Pinaglabanan Bridge in San Juan but at the corner of Sociego and Silencio streets in Santa Mesa, Manila.

The change in venue stems from rigorous research by the historian Dr. Benito J. Legarda Jr., which concluded that the first shot of the Filipino-American War was not fired in San Juan but in a section of the Santa Mesa district in Manila.
