Tagaytay played a significant role in Philippine history. During WWII, Filipino revolutionaries found refuge on its vast forest and ridges. It was used as the landing site and sanctuary for paratroopers on their way to liberate Manila in 1945.
The 41st USAFFE marker is a place where you will know more about Tagaytay’s rich history. It is located beside the Tagaytay International Convention Center, Kaybagal South, Tagaytay City.
On February 03,1945, the 11th Airborne Division of Lt. Gen. William Krueger’s 8th army airdropped military supplies and personnel on the Tagaytay Ridge amidst enemy ground fire. Their mission: to secure Tagaytay City and guarantee the easy flow of troops and supplies to Manila, an action later proved as significant to the Manila liberation. A marker was installed at the Silang Crossing Rotonda to honor the event.
