The fort was built in 1833 by brothers William and Charles Bent, it served as a base for trading with Indian tribes and was the only permanent American settlement in Colorado at that time.
In 1848, after the victory of the United States in the war with Mexico, Colorado again becomes American. The Colorado lands became part of the New Mexico Territory and Utah Territory, created in 1850, and the Kansas Territory and Nebraska Territory, created in 1854.
American settlers moving west were not attracted to the lands of Colorado, most moved further to the Pacific coast of Oregon and California. The first permanent European settlement in Colorado that exists to this day is the city of San Luis, founded in 1851.
Everything changed in the late fifties of the XIX century, when gold was discovered in Colorado.
The first gold in Colorado was found in the South Platte River valley as early as 1849. However, the California gold rush was raging at this time, and the comparatively poor gold reserves found in the Rocky Mountains did not attract much attention. But a few years later, when gold mining in California began to decline, the find was remembered.
In 1858, prospector William Russell, a native of Georgia, who had previously mined gold in California, organized an expedition to search for gold in the Rocky Mountains. Russell was married to a Cherokee woman and, through his Indian connections, knew about the gold found several years earlier in the South Platte River region.
Russell’s expedition moved from what is now Oklahoma and further northwest from Fort Bent. Initially, it had only nine members, but their number grew, quickly exceeding one hundred people.
The search for gold did not bring success, many members of the expedition were disappointed and returned home, but Russell did not give up. In early July 1858, near the mouth of Little Dry Creek (in the Englewood suburb of present-day Denver), William Russell and his partner Sam Bates found about six hundred grams of native gold. This was the first significant gold find in Colorado.
The Colorado Gold Rush has begun. In pursuit of gold, a wave of miners and immigrants poured here (about a hundred thousand people in three years). Prospector settlements were founded, some of which grew into cities. So, in particular, the capital of the state of Colorado Denver, the city of Golden (which translates as “golden”) and others appeared.
The Colorado Gold Rush is also known as Pikes Peak Fever. The fact is that most of the migrant prospectors moved to Colorado from the east, and the last settlement on their way was the town of Manhattan in Kansas, from which there were still hundreds of kilometers to the Rocky Mountains. There were no roads, no signs of any kind, except for natural landmarks. In the vast expanse, one could not only lose the road, but also meet with unfriendly Indian tribes. Pikes Peak, visible from afar, served as the main goal on the long road through the Great Plains. The Colorado Gold Racers, known in the United States as “Fifty-Nineers”, even had a motto: “Pikes Peak or the End!” (Pike’s Peak or Bust!).
