History[edit] See also: Philippine Revolution

The ammunition train and reserves of the 20th Kansas Volunteers, Col. Frederick R. Funston, marching through Caloocan
Caloocan
at night after the battle of February 10.

Originally, Caloocan
Caloocan
is a lowland located on the corner where the old town of Tondo and Tambobong meet. Caloocan
Caloocan
became an independent municipality after it was separated from Tondo in 1815, the original territory was extended to Marikina, San Mateo and Montalban to the east; Tinajeros, Tanza and Tala rivers to the north; San Fransisco del Monte, Sampalok, Sta. Cruz and Tondo in the south; and Dagat-dagatan and Aromahan to the west. The city is historically significant because it was the center of activities for the Katipunan, the secret militant society that launched the Philippine Revolution
Philippine Revolution
during the Spanish occupation of the Philippines. In a house in Caloocan
Caloocan
secret meetings were held by Andrés Bonifacio
Andrés Bonifacio
and his men, and it was in the city's perimeters where the first armed encounter took place between the Katipunan
Katipunan
and the Spaniards. Tje revolution erupted after the Cry of Balintawak
Cry of Balintawak
led by Andres Bonifacio In 1899 the city saw heavy fighting in the Philippine–American War, at the Battle of Caloocan
Battle of Caloocan
and the Second Battle of Caloocan. In 1901, During the formation of the province of Rizal, Caloocan
Caloocan
was included in its matrix. Novaliches
Novaliches
became part of Caloocan
Caloocan
pursuant to Act 942, as amended by Act 984 and Act 1008 of the Philippine Commission, which was transferred in 1949 for the formation of Quezon City. In 1961, After the Republic Act No. 3278 was approved by the Philippine Congress and the plebiscite was conducted. Caloocan
Caloocan
was officially inducted into cityhood on February 16, 1962 Territorial changes[edit] Caloocan
Caloocan
once encompassed a much bigger area without being bisected into north and south. The districts of Balintawak, La Loma and Novaliches
Novaliches
were once part of Caloocan. Balintawak is a historic district because it was the original site of the "Cry of Pugad Lawin" (Unang Sigaw sa Balintawak) at a location called "Kang-kong" near Tandang Sora's house. Novaliches
Novaliches
was an expansive sector with some hillsides that served as meeting places and hideouts for Andrés Bonifacio and the Katipunan. By the 1920s, the consolidation of several municipalities, Caloocan had annexed the neighbouring town of Novaliches, as stated in the Act 942, as amended by Acts 984 and 1008 of the Philippine Commission, bringing its total area to about 15,000 hectares extended to the foothills of Marikina, San Mateo and Montalban in the east; Tinajeros, Tanza and Tala rivers in the North; San Francisco del Monte, Sampalok, Sta. Cruz and Tondo in the south; and Dagat-Dagatan or Aromahan in the west. When Quezon City
Quezon City
was created in 1939, 1,500 hectares of land from Caloocan, the following barrios or sitios: Balintawak, Balingasa, Kaingin, Kangkong, La Loma, Malamig, Matalahib, Masambong, Galas, San Isidro, San Jose, Santol and Tatalon, was to be given to the new capital city. Instead of opposing it, Caloocan
Caloocan
residents willingly gave land to Quezon City
Quezon City
in the belief it will benefit the country's new capital. However, in 1949, Congress passed Republic Act No. 333, which redefined the Caloocan- Quezon City
Quezon City
boundary. The barrios of Baesa, Talipapâ, San Bartolomé, Pasong Tamó, Novaliches, Banlat, Kabuyao, Pugad Lawin, Bagbag, Pasong Putik, which once belonged to Novaliches and had an area of about 8,100 hectares, were excised from Caloocan. The remaining portion of the Novaliches
Novaliches
is now what we call North Caloocan. This caused the division of Caloocan
Caloocan
into two parts, the southern section being the urbanised portion, while the northern section becoming suburban-rural. Geography[edit] Caloocan
Caloocan
is divided into two non-contiguous areas. Southern Caloocan lies directly north of the Manila
Manila
and is bounded by Malabon
Malabon
and Valenzuela to the north and west, Navotas
Navotas
to the west, and Quezon City to the east. Northern Caloocan
Caloocan
is the northernmost territory of Metro Manila
Manila
which most residents call Novaliches, Caloocan; it lies east of Valenzuela, north of Quezon City, and south of San Jose del Monte, Meycauayan
Meycauayan
and Marilao
Marilao
in the province of Bulacan. Caloocan's northern part is much larger than its southern half. Barangays[edit] Caloocan
Caloocan
is divided into 188 barangays. The city uses a hybrid system for its barangays. All barangays have their corresponding numbers but only a few — mostly in the northern part — have corresponding names. However, names of barrios and districts do not necessarily coincide with barangay perimeters. Barangays in southern Caloocan
Caloocan
are smaller compared to their northern counterparts. Among the cities in Metro Manila, only Manila, Pasay
Pasay
and Caloocan implement the so-called "Zone Systems". A zone is a group of barangays in a district. Although a zone is considered a subdivision in the local government units, the people do not elect a leader for the zone in a popular election similar to the normal barangay or local elections. The zoning system is merely for statistical purposes. Caloocan
Caloocan
has 16 zones. The biggest zone in Caloocan
Caloocan
is Zone 15 in District 1 (North Caloocan) directly west of the second biggest zone in Caloocan
Caloocan
which is Zone 16. Barangay

Bagong Silang
Bagong Silang
(176) is the most populous barangay in the entire country with a population of 246,515 people.[4] In 1957, the sitio of Bagbagin was separated from the barrio of Kaybiga and converted into a distinct barrio known as barrio Bagbagin.[5]
