"The Travels of Zebulon Pike"

Zebulon Montgomery Pike (1779-1813) was an American brigadier general and explorer for whom Pikes Peak is named. As a U.S. Army captain in 1806-1807, he led the Pike Expedition to explore and document the southern portion of the Louisiana territory. During this expedition, he discovered what was later named Pikes Peak near present day Colorado Springs, CO. Captured by the Spanish while wandering in present day Colorado after his party got confused in its travels, Pike and his men were taken to Chihuahua in what is now Mexico and was questioned by the Mexican governor. They were released later in 1807 at the border of Louisiana.
