The provincial government had requested this, since September Francis Massacre,fell on a Sunday.

Eastern Samar officials believed the province and its people would be given the "full opportunity" to observe the occasion if it were held on September 30,a Tuesday. In the beginning, residents of Balangiga town and Company C, the 9th US infantry regiment, had a good relationship.

According to historians, relations went downhill after two American soldiers allegedly tried to molest a Filipino woman tending a store. When locals came to the woman's defense, the soldiers wanted revenge. Since then, people in Balingaga were subjected to forced labor and detention with only little food and water.

According to historian Francis Massacre Miller in his book Benevolent AssimilationBalangiga men disguised as women hid weapons inside small caskets which were brought to the church under the pretext that a cholera epidemic had killed many children.

The next day, a Seminole pursued them on horseback and Decourcey was killed after they had split to avoid joint capture.
