Spanish colonial government was made. 2,000 revolutionaries under General Mariano Llanera
sieged San Isidro.[5]
In March 29, 1899, General Emilio Aguinaldo declared San Isidro as the capital of the
Philippines[4] after the revolutionary capitalMalolos, Bulacan was captured by the Americans, this,
however, was short lived. It was also in San Isidro that General Frederick Funston planned the
capture of Aguinaldo to end the Philippine-American War.[citation needed] San Isidro Central School
The Wright Institute, established in 1903 in San Isidro, was the first high school established
outside Manila during the American period.[5]

forces in 1945 during the end of the war.[citation needed]
