Bernardo de Gálvez

Bernardo de Gálvez celebrated the New Year of 1777 with his inauguration as the Governor of Louisiana in Spanish New Orleans.  The Spanish were already shipping covert arms and ammunition to aid the North American rebels against the British Army.   The thirty-something Gálvez continued and greatly expanded the shipments of supplies from the Spanish government.   The Spanish shipped the military equipment up the Mississippi River and onward to the Continental Army in the rebel American colonies.  These supplies were part of the vital assistance provided by the Spanish and Latinos during the entire American Revolutionary War.  For more information on how the Spanish and Latinos helped to win the American Revolutionary War, please visit /
