About Col. Zebulon Pike

"Col. Zebulon Pike was an officer in the Revolutionary War. He was noted for his bravery and the Indians called him "the Great Brave.". He always visited their wigwams without any fear in making his treaties with their tribes.". Article in DAR Magazine, Oct. 1928.

"We know that Zebulon Montgomery Pike was born in Lamberton (Somerset County), New Jersey on January 5, 1779. He was the second of eight children, and the only one to grow to robust adulthood. Four of his siblings died in infancy, the other three were hopeless tuberculosis cases, invalids throughout their lives. At the time that he was born, Pike's father, also named Zebulon Pike, was an officer in George Washington's army, then engaged in fighting the British for American Independence. The elder Pike continued to serve in the military at the conclusion of the war, and young Zebulon grew up on frontier military posts as a result. The elder Pike survived Gen. Arthur St. Clair's defeat in Ohio in 1791, and brought his family to live in Cincinnati while serving with "Mad Anthony" Wayne's Legion. Young Zebulon's formal education was necessarily limited, although he enjoyed reading and learned French and some Spanish as well as the English language. At age 15, Pike entered his father's regiment as a cadet, and was put in charge of supplying frontier posts in Ohio." (Sources: - 5) (Sources: - 5)" (link 2)
