Biographical Note

Albert Pike (1809-1891) came to Arkansas in 1833, and worked as a school teacher and newspaper editor before studying the law. He was active in the politics of the state before the Civil War and served as commander of Confederate troops in the Indian Territory during the war. Following the Civil War, he practiced law in New York City, Memphis, and Little Rock, before moving to Washington, DC in 1870.
