History. Zebulon Pike: The First AngloAmerican to Document the Southwest The second exploration of the Louisiana territory is less well known than Lewis and Clark’s famous expedition, but it is also important. In July of 1806 a young military man named Lieutenant Zebulon Pike was sent to explore the Arkansas and Red Rivers and to report on the southern part of the new territory, which bordered the Spanish-owned lands (present-day Colorado and New Mexico). Some historians believe he might also have had orders to spy on the Spanish colonies.

There were barracks for the soldiers who guarded the missions. The soldiers split their time between the presidios (forts built to guard against attacks) that were located nearby and keeping watch over the missions themselves. If there was trouble with the Indians working at the missions, the soldiers would administer whippings. A total of 21 missions were built along the coast of California in a 600-mile stretch from San Diego to Sonoma. Their locations were carefully planned to be a day’s horseback ride apart from each other.

Although it was less restrictive than it had been before the Native American uprising, life on the missions continued to be very hard for the Native Americans. The European diseases that had killed so many natives continued to take their toll. The Native Americans continued to be overworked and underfed, and many were abused by the soldiers. Every day the mission bells rang out at different hours, indicating what was to be done at that time. Bells told the inhabitants when to wake up, when to go to work, when to pray, and more.
