Web de Anza

is an interactive environment for studying Spain's exploration and colonization of "Alta California" (1774-1776). Diaries and letters (available in both English and Spanish), maps and trail routes, drawing and photos all recreate a living timeline of the past and provide primary documents and multimedia resources covering Juan Bautista de Anza's two expeditions to what would become San Francisco.
