He had many different professions through the years, including lawyer, newspaper editor, writer, and teacher. In 1831, he traveled to Santa Fe in Mexico Territory, where he took part in some exploratory expeditions. In 1834, Pike married Mary Ann Hamilton and settled in Little Rock, Ark. During the Mexican War, he helped raise the Little Rock Guards and served as their captain. At the start of the Civil War, Pike was given the task of forming treaties with the Indians. Appointed brigadier general in Indian Territory, he received constant complaints and criticism from other Confederate leaders concerning the conduct of his Indian troops. In response to the mounting hostility, Pike resigned in 1862. He moved to Washington, District of Columbia, in 1870, where he became increasingly involved with the Masonic Lodge, an organization of which he had been a member since 1850. Pike died in Washington, District of Columbia, on Apr. 2, 1891)
