American fury in the Philippines. XIII / Mass murder

A Corporal in the California Regiment:

"We sleep all day here, as we do our duty all night, walking the
streets. We make every one get into his house by 7 P.M., and we only
tell a man once. If he refuses, we shoot him. We killed over three
hundred men the first night. They tried to set the town on fire. If
they fire a shot from a house, we burn the house down, and every house
near it, and shoot the natives; so they are pretty quiet in town now."
