The Artist

Ed French is a retired Disney artist, who has brought his enormous talent to depict extraordinary moments in American history, through the eyes of Zebulon Pike.

The Setting

Pike joined the United States Army in 1799. Within the first year, he was promoted from Second Lieutenant to First Lieutenant. In 1806, he was promoted to Captain, while he was on the southwest expedition. Pike rose quickly through the ranks, in the six years, after his second expedition, becoming a Brigadier General, during the War of 1812. This rare front facing portrait celebrates his glorious life.

”…shall it be said we died like brave men; and conferred honor, even in death, on the American name.”  Quote from Brigade Order- Sackett’s Harbor, April 25, 1813 by Brigadier General Zebulon Montgomery Pike
