  • Court
  • Prison Chapel
  • Farewells
  • After being court-martialed, Rizal returned to his cell in Fort Santiago to prepare his rendezvous with destiny.
  • Retraction Letter
  • Rizal was moved to the prison chapel where he spent his last moments. His first visitors were Jesuit priests.
  • Death March
  • Rizal was left alone in his cell. He took his lunch and continued writing his farewell poem which he hid in an alcohol cooking stove.
  • Martyrdom of a Hero
  • The draft of the retraction letter sent by the anti-Filipino Archbishop Bernardino Nozaleda was given by Fr. Balaguer to Rizal for his signature. He had rejected it.
  • At about 6:30 A.M., a trumpet sounded at Fort Santiago, a signal to begin the death march to Bagumbayan. • Rizal walked calmly with his defense counsel and two Jesuit priests at his sides.
  • The death ruffles of the drums filled the air. Above the drum beats, the sharp command “Fire” was heard, and the guns of the firing squad barked. Rizal, with supreme effort, turned his bullet-riddled body to the right, and fell on the ground dead – with face upward facing the morning sun.
