General Edilberto Evangelista is a prominent figure in this battle.  A Belgian-trained engineer, he taught the Katipuneros how to build trenches, batteries and pillboxes.  His designs were instrumental in a number of Filipino victories around the Cavite  province.

Zapote River separates the City of Las Piñas in Metro Manila from Bacoor in the Province of Cavite.  The original Zapote  Bridge was hit during the battle, causing one-half to collapse.  The office of Congresswoman Villar funded the restoration  of the half of the bridge, to become a pedestrian promenade, which connects Barangay Zapote, Las Piñas to Barangay  Zapote in Bacoor, Cavite.
