Long Live Leon Kilat!

Pantaleon Villegas of the Negros Islands came to Cebu to help the local insurgents against the Spanish Rule. He was in Carcar when he was poisoned by Carcar's local Spanish elite to quell the local uprising but instead this added fuel to the fire. His statue now guards the entrance of Carcar's Plaza.

There were no "Spanish elites" in Carcar, except perhaps if the priest was a Spaniard. The only legitimate Spanish mestizos in Carcar at the time of the revolution were the Silva, del Corro and Rodriguez families.
