Congress established the Colorado Territory in 1861 with present day boundaries. William Gilpin was appointed the first Territorial governor by President Lincoln. In July, the Supreme Court was organized and Congressional delegates chosen. In September, the first assembly met, and created 17 counties, and selected Colorado City as the Territorial capitol. At this time the population of the Colorado Territory is 25,371.

Colorado troops aided in defeating Confederate General Henry H. Sibley's Army at La Glorieta Pass, New Mexico in 1862.
