Santa Anna starts crossing the Colorado.
Tuesday, April 5. No resistance across the Colorado at Beason's Crossing. When Santa Anna arrives at Ramierez y Sesma's camp he starts the army crossing the river. Incredible shortage of boats. The Texicans have burned, sunk or beached all of them River level is falling and conditions improving and the Mexicans ford the river. Takes a few days to get across with baggage and supplies. Santa Anna is hunting the Texican Army with his three separate forces. He rides 13 miles north to San Bernardo Creek.
