The proposed War and Peace Museum will rise soon in Brgy. Patag, Silay City. According to Mr. Modesto Sa-onoy, President of the Negros Historical Foundation and proponent of the project, the museum will show what happened in the wars against Spain, America, Japan, and the Communist insurgency.
The War and Peace Museum will occupy the one-hectare land area owned by the family of Buddy Jison. The property was given by the owner as perpetual usufruct to the Negros Occidental provincial government. The Philippine Veterans Bank and the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office of the Department of National Defense will fund the museum project.
The War and Peace museum will be located on the top of the hill where WW II battlegrounds are seen. Mr. Sa-onoy said that, according to history, more than 8,000 soldiers died in Brgy. Patag, where the museum will be built.
