Surrender Site Marker - Bataan Attractions

Surrender Site Marker

Surrender Site Marker is located inside Balanga Elementary School Grounds.


The site was used as a command post by Lt. Gen. Homma at the time of Bataan’s Surrender wherein Major Gen. King and his party signed the documents for the surrender of the USAFFE forces in the Phlippines under a mango tree on April 9, 1942.

 Lt. Gen. Homma’s party were kept as hostages in the school house until after the USAFFE troops were rounded up and delivered as POW’s to the nearest Japanese units.
