Abstract

The British invasion of Manila in late 1762 sparked an intense and devastating war in Luzon. By the beginning of 1763, massive popular anti-colonial rebellions erupted in Ilocos and Pangasinan in response to Spain’s temporary loss of control of the capital of its Asian empire. Spanish colonial officials
partnered with Catholic priests and the loyal principalia to raise a large, multiethnic loyalist army that met the foreign invaders and local insurgents in battles. The rival armed forces that converged and clashed in the Philippines embraced scorched earth strategies, ensuring maximum damage to homes and sacred buildings. This chapter considers this complex, multifront war’s destructive impact on human life and material culture in the Philippines, illuminating its enduring impact on cultural heritage and historical knowledge.
