Hailing from Guinobatan, Albay, General Ola led the Bicolanos in their fight for freedom. He is the last revolutionary general to surrender at the end of the Philippine-American War.
To commemorate his heroism, the government, through Proclamation No. 865, has declared September 2 as a special non-working day in the province. (PNA) LAM/JDM
