The site is located inside the Balanga Elementary School at Basa St., Talisay, Balanga City. The monument is just in front of the Bataan WWII Museum which is also in the school premises. The monument, based on an actual photo of the event, commemorates the surrender of the USAFE forces composed of Filipino and American soldiers to the Japanese during... More

This site is located behind the Elementary school and right in front of the Bataan WWII Museum. The sculptures were based on the surrender photos of the US Filipino forces ( USAFFE) to the Japanese forces in WWII. Surely this historic site is worth a visit.

This monument is interesting to see as part of a tour, I found it nice tobsee but no so impressive as some of the WW2 museums I had seen here, the 2 or more day trip to Corrigedor is by far the most impressive trip to do.

Tucked away behind the Balanga Elementary school is this surrender site. It's takes some time to work out exactly where it is and if not for the help of a young boy sitting in the playground, we may not have found it. This is worthwhile seeing for two reasons, the first its historic reference to WW2 and the second bonus... More

This is where Major General Edward P. King Jr surrendered Bataan on WWII to stop or prevent further loss of lives. It is surely a memorable day and after this event is the start of the Death March. It is located inside a school, you can hear and see teachers and students participating in class. Infront of this is the... More

This is an important site as it is where General King surrendered the US/Fil forces on Bataan. A sad time for the US, but they DID comeback.

Bataan is the last defense before the Japanese occupation. And all the valiant heroes stood their ground until the eventual surrender. This marker is a life-size diorama under the mango tree at inside a public elementary school. It is quite interesting and the statues are interesting. It's a definite must-stop if you want to commemorate the heroes of Bataan. To... More

The fall of Bataan is an event in the Filipino History that Filipinos should be proud of. It took the Japanese months to subdue the stubborn forces that defended Mt. Samat and messed up their schedule of conquest. So much blood were spilled that in conclusion, Japanese have to torch the whole mountain and bulldoze their way up. You can... More
