In due course, a wall was constructed around the city that faced both the open bay and the Pasig River.

When informed of the “treacherous Filipino attack,” the Senate quickly ratified the treaty. 10 Despite some notable defections by Filipino elites, who did not have the stomach for a sustained struggle, Aguinaldo continued to direct an effective campaign against the American invaders until March 23, 1901, when an American­directed party of Filipino traitors captured him and his bodyguard of soldiers.  Even the colonial administration under a reelected President William McKinley incorporated prominent Filipinos, and the island’s first American civil governor, William Howard Taft, spoke of eventual independence, although at some distant point in the future.
