Salado River, also known as Río Salado del Norte to differentiate it from the Río Salado that flows south of San Luis and the Río Salado that serves as the boundary to the province of Buenos Aires in Argentina. The river springs from the Nevado del Acay (near Salta) and after 1,200 miles empties into the Paraná River at Santa Fe. Europeans became aware of the Río Salado in 1573 when Juan de Garay discovered it. The river was an active border between the southern Chaco and the province of Córdoba during colonial times. On its banks the Army of the North commanded by Manuel Belgrano swore allegiance to the confederation of the United Provinces of the Río De La Plata in 1813.
