Muzquiz, Coahuila de Zaragoza, Mexico
Founded in 1725 in the Sierra of Santa Rosa, in the place today known as Hacienda La Babia. The second expedition got lost and founded the settlement in the present place near of the Rio Grande de las Sabinas where the town was moved with everything including its Presidio (Prison). Its original name was Santa Rosa Maria de Sacramento, later shortened to Santa Rosa. The city was renamed in honor of the hometown hero of the independence war, General Melchor Muzquiz who became president of Mexico in 1832.
