Frederick Funston was a major figure in the United States colonial war in the Phillipines. As the war became an guerilla war, Funston led a mission to capture the leader of the insurection, Emilio Aguinaldo.
To do this he used a group of 80 loyal Philipinoes disquised as rebels and a group of five American officers disguised as captured American privates. After many days of searching they found Aguinaldo’s compound and entered. Later that night they did a Trojan Horse and captured the camp. You can call is dishonorable, and some did, but it reads like something straight out of a boy’s adventure novel and secured Funston’s brief moment of fame.
