History Of Colorado

Colorado joined the union as the 38th state in 1876 and is America's eighth largest state in terms of land mass. Colorado is located in the Rocky Mountain region of the western United States. Colorado's varied natural resources attracted the ancient Pueblo peoples and the Plains Indians. The Europeans came to the region in the late 1500s and in 1848 the area was ceded to the U.S. with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo that ended the Mexican-American War (1846-48). The discovery of gold in Colorado in 1858 attracted new settlers. During the Plains Indian Wars (1860s-80s), Colorado's wild frontier was the scene of intense fighting between Native Americans and white settlers. When the Spanish came they referred the region as Colorado for its red-colored earth.
