So... as a personal project I was putting together a essay on Albert Pike. Mostly due to the number of times he'd been mentioned on that particular
This was a couple'a few weeks ago, and I've gotten nearly three pages so far typed up without getting to his Masonic activities.
At this point, if I ever get around to finishing it'll be far to large to post on ATS and expect any serious read through.
So instead, I figured it'd be worthwhile to link to some of the sources I've stumbled across for other folks.

State or province? Bond or free? by Albert
Enclopedia or Arkansas: Albert Pike
Pretty cool, has a lot of information in general, as well as pictures as well.
Pike wrote bits for the Arkansas Gazette, and the transcriptions themselves make mention of some of his and other officer's actions around the time.
You can put in a request for what he wrote, just found it today so havn't tried it myself.

More newspapers from about the time, mentions Pike's frustration over being passed over for promotion repeatedly.
Unfortunately, I was not able to dig up any archives from the Arkansas Advocate, from the time he was in charge. The only records I could find showed
an archive that started in 1923.
Most of his works are available on Google Books at this point, the copywright laws are far out of date at this point.
