The Biak-na-Bato Constitution, a replica of the Cuban Constitution signed on November 1,1897, called for the separation of the Philippines from the Spanish monarchy.

During the Philippine Revolution, General Emilio Aguinaldo retreated to Biak-na-Bato, San Miguel de Mayumo, Bulacan and established a republican government known as the Biak-na-Bato Republic.

De las Alas was later appointed director of the interior of the Malolos Republic.
