Rock Ledge to reenact Zebís camp
A reenactment of Zebulon Pike's camp when he first saw the mountain later named Pikes Peak is scheduled at Rock Ledge
Ranch Historic Site Sunday, January 22 from 1 to 4 p.m.
The free event is part of a regional commemoration of the Pike Expedition Bicentennial. Historical reenactors from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and representatives of the Frontier Army Living History Association will set up the camp to demonstrate what Pike's company would have experienced.
Visitors can witness Pike's contact with the native people of this region, and learn about the everyday activities of Capt. Pike's Company.
Also on view will be the kinds of tools, clothing and equipment that Pike would have taken on the expedition. The scene will include American Indian lodges, firearms and men in authentic uniforms.
At 1:15 p.m. and 3:15 p.m., local historian Mark Gardner will present a program about Pike's trek to this region.
