Your support of Our Congressional Effort
Organizations or individuals from all states Pike traversed (MO, KS, NE, CO, NM, TX and LA) as well as Mexico
and 14 other states, have pledged their support in our Legislative effort. We would like to be able to call
upon you for help when appropriate action is needed.
If you make us aware of your willingness to help in any aspect of our legislative process, we will request that
you visit, write or call your Congress persons in support of the establishment of the Pike National Historic
Trail. We will send to you a suggested letter when the legislation requires support, both for the feasibility
study and the enabling legislation. We find that visiting your Senator or Representative has most successful
effect, calling second, mail third with email being the least effective.
The new Congress is likely to consider our legislation.
We have the support of the Colorado Governor and expect a Colorado Resolution supporting the establishing
of the Pike National Historic Trail. Perhaps you would also like to work for similar Resolutions in your state
