Mi Ultimo Adios
About this creation
Mi Ultimo Adios (Spanish, 'My Last Farewell') is a poem written by Philippine national hero Dr. Jose Rizal on the eve of his execution on 30 December 1896.

Jose Rizal's advocacy of liberty through peaceful means rather than by violent revolution makes him Asia's first modern non-violent proponent of freedom. Forerunner of Gandhi and contemporary of Tagore and Sun Yat Sen, all four created a new climate of thought throughout Asia, leading to the attrition of colonialism.

Jose Rizal was tried before a court-martial for rebellion, sedition, and conspiracy, was convicted on all three charges, and sentenced to death. Before his execution on December 30, 1896 by a squad of Filipino soldiers of the Spanish Army, a backup force of regular Spanish Army troops stood ready to shoot the executioners should they fail to obey orders.

When you consider that this actually happened it makes for a pretty intense MOC. That being said it's a great build --I really like the priest-- and a piece of history which deserves to be talked about.

A piece of our history in one vignette... I'll look for the scrappy dog in the future. Nicely done, AC! :-D

I like the MOC, however, the Spanish soldiers wearing helmets from the 16th century stunned me! Con gra tu la tions! (I am still stunned)
