Shipping from the State of Colorado to New Mexico
Named after the Colorado River, the Territory of Colorado was organized on February 28, 1861, and on August 1, 1876, U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant signed Proclamation 230 admitting Colorado to the Union as the 38th state. Currently, Colorado is the 8th largest state in terms of land mass.
Colorado is nicknamed “The Centennial State” because it became a state one century after the signing of the United States Declaration of Independence. It is also well-known by the nickname “Colorful Colorado”. The state tree is the Colorado Blue Spruce, the state bird is the Lark Bunting and the state flower is the White and Lavender Columbine. The state motto is ‘Nothing without the Deity’ (Latin: Nil sine Numine).
Colorado is located in the western United States covering most of the southern Rocky Mountains and the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains. Colorado is bordered by Wyoming to the north, Nebraska to the northeast, Kansas to the east, Oklahoma to the southeast, New Mexico to the south, Utah to the west, and touches Arizona to the southwest at the Four Corners. The state is known for its vivid landscape of mountains, forests, high plains, mesas, canyons, plateaus, rivers, and desert lands. Colorado is part of the western and southwestern United States and is one of the Mountain States. Denver is both the capital and most populous city of Colorado. Residents of the state are known as Coloradans, although the antiquated term “Coloradoan” is occasionally used.
Shipping to the State of Colorado to New Mexico
The state that is now New Mexico was first colonized by Spain and was included in the Gadsden Purchase in 1853. However, New Mexico did not officially become a state of the United States until 1912. The top-secret Manhattan Project, in which leading American scientists created the first atomic bomb, took place in New Mexico during World War II.
The bomb was tested at the Trinity Bomb site close to Alamogordo in 1945. When a local farmer found unidentifiable debris on his property in 1947, some people in Roswell, New Mexico, began to wonder if there might be extraterrestrial life there. They thought it might be the wreckage of an alien spaceship that had crashed.
