February 28, 1861
Statehood: August 1, 1876
state was named after the Spanish word "Colorado," which means
"reddish colored" that presumably refers to the red sandstone
formations in the area or reddish brown color of the Colorado River.
The territory that ultimately became Colorado was added to the United
States by the 1803 Louisiana Purchase and the 1848 Mexican Cession. The
Colorado Gold Rush of 1859 brought many settlers to the Denver area,
though the population collapsed following an initial mining boom.
The Colorado Territory was organized as a United States territory on
February 28, 1861, and Colorado attained statehood August 1, 1876, 100
years after the signing of our nation's Declaration of Independence
(earning it the nickname the "Centennial State")
