And The Winner Is…

Thank you to all who participated even though some of you broke the code but didn’t finish the problem. I know you’d like to remain anonymous and I respect that.

To those who are wondering, here’s the deciphered code:

And the answer is “Emilio Aguinaldo”. Congratulation to Ms. Sardonyx of Hulascoop atbp for her correct entry.

For a snippet of history and clue, you may find this interesting. Of course a more “colorful” narrative of what happened that faithful day could be found in Ambet Ocampo’s book - “Luna’s Mustache”. Acampo’s research was also the reason why I don’t consider Aguinaldo a “hero”. To me his just another political opportunist with a “gangstah” mentality. His thinking and methods are comparable to those warlords from Maguindanao.

I’ll post Ms. Sardz caricature in a couple of days. Again, thank you all.

  2. LifeMoto, correct. Hindi lang yan, ginahasa pa ng mga taohan nya ang maybahay ni Andres. Ang buong pangyayari mababasa mo sa aklat na "Bonifacio's Bolo" na akda din ni Ocampo.
