Purple Mountains Majesty
So, I say to you, ask and it shall be given onto you, search and you will find; knock and the door will be opened onto you."
Colorado Chapters will be looking for ways to connect our State with the War of 1812, which was geographically removed from the battlefields. As a State Society, we will be exploring ways to honor the War of 1812 veteran, Zebulon Pike, who lost his life at the Battle of York on April 27th, 1813, at the age of 34. In 1806-1807, Zebulon Pike lead the Pikes Expedition, which traveled through what is now the State of Colorado. Pike attempted to ascend the mountain which now bears his name, Pikes Peak. We are looking to honor his sacrifice by placing a plaque recalling his importance to both Colorado and the War of 1812. State Chapters will be looking for more connections.
