Three photographs showing the unveiling of the Pike monument at Pawnee Village in Republic County, Kansas. This monument commemorates the site where in 1806, United States explorer Zebulon Pike convinced the Pawnees to lower the Spanish flag recently left there by a large Spanish force and raise the United States flag. This flag raising episode was true except it happened about forty miles up the Republican River at a village the Pawnees moved to after deserting this one. The site was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 and today is operated by the Kansas Historical Society as Pawnee Indian Museum State Historic Site.

Date: September 30, 1901
