High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The Balangiga bells are
three church bells taken by the United States Army from the town
church of Balangiga, Eastern Samar in the Philippines as war booty
after reprisals following the Balangiga incident in 1901 during the
Philippine-American War. One church bell is in the possession of
the 9th Infantry Regiment at Camp Red Cloud, their base in South
Korea, while two others are on a former base of the 11th Infantry
Regiment at F. E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming. At
least one of the bells had tolled to signal the surprise attack by
the Filipinos while the Americans were eating breakfast. The attack
claimed the lives of more than forty soldiers of the US garrison
posted in the town.
