More than 30,000 people were kidnapped and disappeared. The majority were adolescents under 18 years old.

The Spanish conquest and colonization of Argentina took place between the 16th century and the beginning of the 19th century, in which a part of the current territory of Argentina was conquered and colonized by the Spanish Empire. In this period the expression Argentina (country of silver) appears for the first time to refer to an area without defined limits that extended from the Río de la Plata to the northwest. The period also includes the arrival for the first time of Spaniards to various areas of current Argentine territory, at which time in many cases they adopted the name with which the indigenous peoples already called that region and in others they designated them with new names.

The Government of Juan Manuel de Rosas, supported from exile by General José de San Martín, prepared a resistance and prevented it.The invading forces sought to enter through the Paraná. However, the national troops, under the command of Lucio Mansilla, went ahead in a narrow bend of that river: the Vuelta de Obligado, in the Buenos Aires district of San Pedro.The number of enemy forces far exceeded the Argentine forces in quantity and modernity of their weapons, but they were not intimidated and fought for seven hours. In this way, they managed to prevent the opposing troops from occupying the coasts, a necessary objective to be able to enter Argentine territory.
