Happy 136th Birthday Colorado!

Today is Colorado's birthday. U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant signed a proclamation admitting Colorado as the 38th state on August 1, 1876. Colorado is nicknamed the "Centennial State" because it was admitted to the Union in 1876, the centennial year of the United States Declaration of Independence.
