17 July, 1892


Jose P Rizal, was exiled to the island of Dapitan in the southernmost island group of the Philippines, Mindanao. There he established a school that taught English to young boys, he worked on agricultural projects on abaca, a plant used for rope, and he continued to practice medicine, eventually meeting one of the most famous women in his life, Josephine Bracken. Bracken and Rizal applied for a marriage license but was denied by the Church (which had excommunicated him).

His exile to Dapitan was a result of his arrest by the Spanish government for being a subversive and for his reported involvement in the rebellion.
