To the Philippine Nationalist's bitter disappointment, control of the islands was transferred to the U. S. In the process, the U.S. inherited the rebellion by the Tagalos. An armed revolt between the Tagalos and the U. S. was fought from 1899 to 1901 when it was effectively crushed.
        The following residents of Kendall County participated in what is referred to, in U.S. military history, as the Philippine Insurrection.
