Map: The Anza Expedition 1775-1776

In 1776, while American patriots fought for their independence from England, Spanish Lt. Colonel Juan Bautista de Anza led more than 240 men, women, and children some 1,800 miles to establish a settlement at San Francisco Bay. These families were the first colonists to come overland across the frontier of New Spain into present-day California.

Al mismo tiempo que en 1776 los patriotas angloamericanos iniciaban la lucha por su indepenencia de Inglattera, el teniente coronel español Juan Bautista de Anza condujo a unas 240 colonoes más de 2900 kilólimetros para establecerse en Alta California.

Era la primera vez que se utilizaba la ruta terrestre de Neuva España para traer pobladores en este caso los que habian de establecer el pueblo de San Francisco.
