Additional Details:
Lieutenant Colonel Juan Batista de Anza was the Spanish governor of New Mexico from 1778 to 1789 and was also the first white man to cross into Upper California overland by way of Southern Arizona and over the Colorado River. While governor of New Mexico, he headed a troop of soldiers that defeated and killed the notorious Chief Cuerno Verde of the Comanches. He also led an expedition to the relief of the starving Hopis in 1780. (In 1775 the Hope population was decreased, by an epidemic of smallpox, to 798)
