The Bataan Death March of World War ll took place in this part of the Philippines. Bacolor is one of the towns that the soldiers marched through as they made their way from Bataan to San Fernando. The trek was more than 100 kilometers, "leaving a trail of the most inhuman treatment accorded to patriotic soldiers who offered their lives in defense of country and freedom." There are markers along the roadway in memory of soldiers who died during the march. These markers also mark the kilometers of the march.
