On March 5, 1766, Antonio de Ulloa y de la Torre-Girault (1716 –1795) administered the transfer of the Louisiana territories from the French to the Spanish. Ulloa was a Spanish general, explorer, author, astronomer, colonial administrator and the first Spanish governor of Louisiana. He accomplished scientific research in Peru, and published “Relación histórica del viaje á la América Meridiona”, about the geography, natural history and Native Americans in South America. During the American Revolutionary War, Ulloa also aided the norteamericano rebels with desperately needed supplies of gunpowder.
