Smith na paslangin ang lahat ng mamamayan ng bayan, bata man o matanda, at gawing isang “umaatungal na kaparangan” (“howling wilderness”) ang Balangiga. Ang kaniyang utos: “Patayin ang lahat ng tao at sunugin ang lahat ng bagay; higit na marami kayong nasunog at napatay, higit itong makalulugod sa akin” (“Kill everyone and burn everything; the more you burn and kill, the better it will please me”). Ninakaw din ng mga sundalong Amerikano ang mga kampana ng simbahan ng Balangiga at dinala ito sa America bilang isang samsam (dalawa sa mga kampana ay matatagpuan ngayon sa F.E.Warren Air Force Base sa Cheyenne, Wyoming, at ang isa pa ay nasa Madison Barracks sa Sackets Harbor, New york).

Picture Trivia

         The leopard (scientifically known as Panthera pardus) is a large spotted member of the cat family (Felidae) native to Africa and Asia. Do you know that leopards once inhabited much of Europe? They did, but became extinct there near the end of the Pleistocene, some 10,000 years ago. The oldest known fossils of leopards are from late Pliocene deposits (about two million years old) in India and southern Africa.
          Leopards are endangered throughout their distribution due to loss of habitat and natural prey, and hunting.
