|Jose P. Rizal: June 19, 1861 – December 30, 1896|
I'm posting this card in celebration of Dr. Jose Rizal's 150th birthday. Rizal, the Philippines' national hero, was the most prominent advocate for reform in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era. His prolific writings, which exposed the abuses of the Spanish government, were one of those important works that awakened political consciousness and fanned the flames of nationalism resulting in the Philippine Revolution of 1896.
