Kit Carson’s contributions to the westward expansion of the United States rank him as one of the nation’s great folk heroes. In 1824, at age 15, he ran away from home to join a caravan of traders bound for Santa Fe. Young Kit was instructed in the art of fur trapping and trading - a career he pursued for fifteen years.
 
In 1842 a chance encounter with explorer John C. Fremont made Carson an active participant in extending the boundaries of the continental U.S. A guide for Fremont’s government-financed expeditions until 1846, he joined up with General Stephen W. Kearny, whose command was heading for California with presidential orders to take over the region. Alternately fighting and scouting, he earned a reputation for bravery, loyalty, and devotion to duty.
 
During the Civil War he served in the Union Army as colonel of the 1st New Mexico Volunteers. Following the war he was appointed superintendent of Indian affairs for the Colorado Territory. Carson’s fairness and sympathy for the plight of Native Americans made him an ideal choice for the position, which he held until his death. Not easily forgotten, his name is preserved across the American southwest, including Nevada’s capital, Carson City.
