Emilio Aguinaldo
abandoned the former capital, Malolos, Bulacan. This lasted only for a month before the seat was moved to Nueva Ecija
Nueva Ecija
in Aguinaldo's attempt to elude the pursuing Americans. On October 23, 1899, Gregorio Aglipay, military vicar general of the revolutionary forces, called the Filipino clergy to a conference in Paniqui. There, they drafted the constitution of the Philippine Independent Church. They called for the Filipinization of the clergy, which eventually led to a separation from the Roman Catholic Church

in the Philippines. Tarlac
