Remember When for April 22, 2014
115 years ago
The patriotic instincts of the people of Susanville bubbled over as word of the defeat of the Spanish in the Philippines reached town.
The spontaneous exhibition of patriotism included a procession through the streets and a performance of the National Anthem and other patriotic music by members of the Mountain Echo Band.
Reports from Manila said Spanish losses involved 400 dead, 100 wounded, the sinking of three major vessels and the capture of the remaining Spanish fleet.
