Several land battles were fought over control of the city of Manila. Also, one battle was fought on Manila Bay.

The first battle was fought between the British and the Spanish, with the British taking control of Manila for a couple of years. The second battle was during the Spanish-American War in 1898 in which the city, held by the Spanish, surrendered to U.S. forces. The third battle followed only months later in 1899 during the Philippine-American War when Filipino revolutionaries tried to take the city now held by the U.S. army.
