Battle of Pulang Lupa local hero Lucio Quinto remembered

Invitation to the 112th Battle of Pulang Lupa Commemorative 
Program at the Torrijos Covered Court


 Key to the success of the Battle of Pulang Pula was the participation of local revolutionists in Torrijos, led by Lucio Quinto. He was the municipal presidente of Torrijos at that time, providing Abad with vital information on the movements of the Americans and in helping Abad execute his plans by supplying rifle and bolo-carrying men from Torrijos. The association between Abad and Quinto remained even after Abad’s surrender to the American forces in April 1901.


The American Army believed that the guerillas might have had up to 300 weapons, including the arms taken from Shield’s party by the guerillas, yet by mid-1901 the Army had recovered only 186 rifles and 12 revolvers.


Then we find the following entry from the Report of Philippine Commission on the Constabulary Force in Marinduque and its arrest in 1902 of Quinto, Abad, Pedro Lardizabal and others:

“In the month of January 1902, 25 rifles were found hidden away in the hills and guarded by two ex-insurgency soldiers. These rifles were found by Inspector Schuetz. Inspector Smith made a thorough investigation which resulted in the arrest of the clerk of court of first instance, an ex-colonel of insurgents named Maximo Abad, he being implicated the deepest, and Pedro Lardizabal, an ex-major of insurgents, Ramon Revilla, Victor Revilla, and Estanislao Pernia, ex-insurgent soldiers, and the president of Torrijos, Lucio Quinto.

“Inspector Smith had a very difficult time in getting evidence against these men, as all the natives seemed to be impeding every effort of his, and the justice of the peace preferred counter charges against him. However, all of those arrested were convicted by the court of first instance and received sentences of from one to ten years for sedition.”
Quinto, married Viviana Marquez and they had nine children, the oldest surviving daughter, Estefania Q. del Mundo is now 95 years old and continues to reside in Torrijos. Congressman Lord Allan Quinto Velasco is a fourth-generation scion of the Quinto-Marquez family.
