This was the culmination of the process that began in 1916, when the 𝙅𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙨 𝙇𝙖𝙬 pledged the eventual recognition of Philippine independence, and the Philippine Independence (𝙤𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙏𝙮𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙨-𝙈𝙘𝘿𝙪𝙛𝙛𝙞𝙚) Act of 1934, which provided for a ten-year transitional period to prepare for independence. The independence of the Philippines was marked by Manuel Roxas retaking his oath as President of the Philippines, eliminating the pledge of allegiance to the United States required prior to independence. Independence thereafter was celebrated on July 4th of every year until 1962.”
