      Colorado is a state in the midwestern United States. Denver is the capital and the most populous city of Colorado. The state's population was estimated to be 4,665,177 as of 2005.[2] Colorado is also considered to be a part of the Mountain, Southwestern, and Central regions of the country. Residents of Colorado are known as Coloradans.

     The word "Colorado" was selected by Congress in 1861 as the name for the Colorado Territory that is today a state. The name has its origins in the Spanish language, where it is directly translated as "colored red." [4] It is named after the Colorado River (Río Colorado), itself named after its reddish-brown color.

     The territory that ultimately became Colorado was added to the United States by the 1803 Louisiana Purchase and the1848 Mexican Cession. In 1854 the Kansas Territory was organized, including what is now much of Colorado. The Colorado Gold Rush of 1859 (see also Fifty-Niner) brought many settlers to the Denver area. A convention was held to organize the provisional Jefferson Territory, but an official break from the Kansas Territory didn't happen until 1861. The Colorado Territory was organized as a United States territory on February 28, 1861, lame duck President Buchanan signing an Act of Congress. Colorado attained statehood August 1, 1876, (earning it the moniker the "Centennial State"). Colorado women were granted the right to vote starting on November 7, 1893.
