Today, in 1946, the Philippines regained its independence as a new republic. The Treaty of Manila was signed which granted the Philippines its independence from the United States with Manuel Roxas as the first president of the newly independent country. This day is also recognized as the Republic Day and Philippine-American Friendship Day in commemoration of the restoration of the Philippine Republic. Following the Philippines’ independence from the United States, the two countries would maintain a special relationship with the Philippines being one of the major allies of the United States. July 4 also commemorates the independence day of both the United States (from Great Britain in 1776) and the Philippines (from the United States in 1946).
