ORIENTAL MINDORO (History, Schools, Business, Resorts, Directory)

BRIEF HISTORY

In pre-Hispanic times, Puerto Galera was a bustling port as early as the 10th century, hosting. Chinese junks and traders from India, Java and Sumatra. Early Chinese manuscripts mentioned that in 982 AD, certain traders from Ma-it (the present Mindoro) traded valuable merchandise to Canton.
In 1574, the Spaniards established town of Puerto Galera and in the early 17th century, after Mindoro was separated from Bonbon (now Batangas) and became a corregimiento, it was declared the capital of Mindoro. Brgy. San Isidro was the original capital site, but Moro raids forced a move to the current poblacion. The capital was moved to Calapan in 1837. On May 22, 1897, during the revolution, Juan Naguit led a bloody uprising, capturing the old Spanish fort at Sukol (now Bongabong).
Calapan was besieged from June 1 up to the 30th when 1,000 men under Col. Alfonso Panopio of Bauan affected the surrender of Spanish Gov. Rafael Morales.
Mindoro was liberated on July 21, 1898 by Filipino forces led by Macario Adriatico. On April 1901, during the Philippine-American War, Lt.-Col. Ramon Atienza of Batangas was made revolutionary governor and commander of the Mindoro Forces.
On July 23, an American expeditionary force was sent to Calapan to free U.S. prisoners of war. On July 27, another 800-man expedition on four gunboats led by Maj. R.K. Evans anchored at Calapan Bay. The town surrendered on August 1.
Atienza was captured on September 23 and the whole of Mindoro was pacified on May 1902. On June 23, 1902, Mindoro was annexed to Marinduque by virtue of Philippine Legislative Act No. 432. It became a regular province on February 20, 1921 by virtue of Philippine Legislative Act No. 2964. On February 7, 1942, during World War II, the Japanese under Kendo Susuki landed in Sitio Kapihan, Brgy. Silonay in Calapan. Two guerilla groups operated in the area: one under Capt. Esteban Beloncio and another under Maj. Ramon Ruffy (provincial commander of the 1st Mindoro PC Company). American forces liberated Calapan on January 23, 1945. On June 13, 1950, Mindoro was divided into two provinces by virtue of Republic Act No. 205.  On November 15, 1994, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake left 100 people dead from landslides and tsunamis that hit Calapan.
