The U.S. occupation or American colonization of the Philippines began after the Spanish-American War in 1898, when the Philippines were transferred from Spanish to American control. The U.S. promised eventual independence, but instead established a colonial government and exploited Philippine resources. The American occupation sparked the Philippine-American war, also known as the Philippine Insurrection, which were brutally suppressed by U.S. military forces. The U.S. continued to hold the Philippines as a colony for decades and established a commonwealth government up until 1946, with the occupation ending only after World War II. The legacy of the U.S. occupation is a contentious issue in Philippine history, with ongoing debates about its impact on Philippine culture, society, and politics.
