1776: Juan Bautista de Anza and San Francisco

On this day in 1776, Juan Bautista de Anza arrived in what we now call San Francisco.  

It took years to settle the city by the bay.  By 1852, the population had reached 36,000.

Thanks to Sr. De Anza, we got songs like "San Francisco" by Scott McKenzie.....the composer was John Phillips of Mamas & Papas.....
