However,the guerrillas alluded him as a “puppet mayor”.Though Mayor Ebarle held the Japanese-appointedposition, Mayor Gregorio E. Edillo also continued tobe the official leader under the authority of thePhilippine Commonwealth with the United States. Onthe other hand, the people also recognized thecommand of the guerrilla forces of Leyte or the LeyteArea Command under Coronel Ruperto Kangleon,and supported as well the supervision of theVolunteer Guards in the town level.
  13. 13. There were only two leaders of the VolunteerGuards in Libagon. The first was LieutenantFrancisco Barros, followed by Francisco “Dodo”Espina.

  20. 20. Old Building of LIBAGON ACADEMY
  21. 21. Initially known as the “Libagon High School,Inc.”, the establishment basically taughtCatechism – training for the young Catholicfaithful with questions and answers about theessentials of Catholic faith and doctrine sothat they could understand easily their faith.Besides the 3 R’s (Reading, Writing andArithmetic), the Spanish language wasnormally taught at that time. Music, however,was especially instructed.
  22. 22. Musicians, songwriters, singers andchoirmaster were trained for the church’schoir. The same musicians completed thetown’s band that was well-known amongother bands in the province.
  23. 23. Uwan- Uwanan Waterfalls
  24. 24. Uwan-uwanan falls is located in barangayKawayan, Libagon. The gorge is a world-class adventure wonder. Climbing,swimming and trekking rolled into one.It will take a two-hour trek to themountains, rappelling and climbingbamboo ladders within cascading fallsbefore you reach the top.
  25. 25. Uwan-uwanan, literally means “resembling arainfall” because the two-hour track entailsan enchanting encounter of an “uwan-uwanan “. And at the top, photo enthusiastsare in for a marvelous treat. At exactly 12:00noon when the sun is directly above themiddle of the narrow opening at the gorge,the natural light is awe-inspiring as itdramatically illuminates the whole arearesembling a magnificent altar in a cathedralor a place of worship.
  26. 26. Patag- Daku Mountains
  27. 27. Patag Daku, in English, means "big plain". It is certainlybig but is never quite plain. It is actually a valley sodense in vegetation that novice campers andmountaineers will never come in or out without anexperienced guide leading the way. But the trek to thevalley comes big in every way. In mountaineeringparlance, it is a major climb. Not the leisurely stroll thatone might expect, the climb is an arduous six hourjourney through a maze of trees, ferns, moss, grass andbig trees.
  28. 28. "Patag Daku, the mossy forest more than 500hectares of unexplored, uncharted wilderness,fraught with dangerous tales of huge snakesand wild animals." -Libagon Blogspot-
  29. 29. Pangi Black Sand Beach
  30. 30. The beach in barangay Pangi is of fine black sandsusually great for swimming, hiking and ecotourism.Other black sand beaches can also be found in moreplaces than anyone thinks, like the famous black sandbeaches of Polynesia, Indonesia, Iceland, theCaribbean islands and the Punaluu Black Sand Beachin Hawaii, were created virtually instantaneously bythe violent interaction between hot lava and seawater.The suspicion of a volcano close to Libagon mayexplain the black sand beach formation in barangayPangi. But there is no exact evidence on thissuspicion as verified by the concerned agency.
