Ito ay isang pagsasalaysay ng isang labinlimang  taong  batang lalaki, si Plorante Acobo, na umanib sa Katipunan, noong kapanahunan, na ang lihim na mapanghimagsik na samahan, ay noon pa naman, bagu bago pa lamang  natuklasan ng mga Kastila. Nang mga panahong iyon si Bonifacio ay umiwas  at lumayo patungong sityo ng Kangkong sa Balintawak.

The Puente de Espana (Bridge of Spain) was one of only three bridges in Manila at the turn of the century. It crossed the Pasig River and connected Intramuros to the Chinese section of Binondo. It was wide enough to accommodate pedestrians, horse drawn carriages and the trolley system known as the tranvia. This was replaced by the Jones Bridge.

The OFI Library  is a Philippine study center with a collection of nearly 21,000 books, serials, images, and documents relating to Philippine history with some dating back to the 17th century.
 
The OFI Library produced mobile photo exhibits of Filipiniana imagery of various themes which are brought to different schools, universities, local museums, churches and other public venues in Manila as well as the provinces. Interested parties may request for these exhibits. Other exhibits featuring original library materials from the collections are held within the foundation premises.
 
The foundation also hosts conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and other interdisciplinary events. The seminar and conference rooms provide the venue for our educational and cultural programs. These rooms are also available for rent for cultural, socio-civic, as well as corporate activities.
