By Belchite

Hello everyone,

From the TV series Abandoned Engineering, Season 3, Episode 7.

When the world learned that Franco and his fascist compatriots were trying to overthrow the elected government of Spain, there was really a lot of outrage and a lot of people wanted to come and help this beleaguered government. ... Around 3,000 of those volunteers were from the United States. They formed the Abraham Lincoln battalion and made their way to Belchite. By Belchite, the Abraham Lincoln battalion has been through a couple of major campaigns, they are really veterans, they're first rate troops at this time, they weren't when they started.

Does "By Belchite" mean before it (the Abraham Lincoln battalion) came to Belchite?

Thank you.
