Batangas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (865 words)
Its capital is Batangas City and it is bordered by the provinces of Cavite and Laguna to the north and Quezon to the east.
The name "Batangas" was derived from the word "batang," which is a term of the natives for the numerous logs found in the Calumpang River, the body of water that runs through the northeastern portion of the town and assumes the shape of a tuning fork.
Batangas was also among the first of the eight Philippine provinces to revolt against Spain and also one of the provinces placed under Martial Law by Spanish Governor General Ramon Blanco on August 30, 1896.
