1962 Diego Silang Revolt

When  British forces invaded Manila during the Seven Years' War in 1762, Diego Silang led a revolt in northern Philippines against Spanish rule. Silang was killed in 1763 and Spanish troops subsequently defeated the revolutionary movement.

The 25c Antonio Luna definitive stamp was overprinted and surcharged to mark the 200th anniversary of the Diego Silang Revolt.
