      ça grince un peu comme terme je trouve, limites ?

      peut-être noter SHS.

    6. .

      C'est peut-être l'usage mais l'absence de point d'interrogation me perturbe.

    1. Pike and his men were then sent back to Louisiana under military escort. It was now

      New point = new paragraph.

    2. As food became scarce, and horses died, the men under Pike’s command became fatigued.

      Vary word use -- more active verb than "became?"

    3. Zebulon Pike ultimately had less luck than Lewis and Clark in evading the Spanish and ended up seeking them out.

      Topic sentence needs clarification.

    4. Where American explorers ventured, entire ways of life were marked for death, even if not overnight. Many, such as the Pawnee leader Sharitarish, realized this and attempted to impede Pike.[24]

      How? Finish this point.

    5. It should not be forgotten that these romantic voyages of discovery were also the beginnings of the end for entire cultures.

      The beginnings of the end came long before this -- but I get what you are saying.

    6. 1804 death of Aaron Burr until September of 1806.[18

      I think you mean the 1804 death of Alexander Hamilton.

    7. ,

      Eliminate comma

    8. (not least of all because the claim against Burr was largely true).

      Eliminate parenthetical asides. Incorporate this clause into the sentence.

    9. was to accompany the first half of the expedition

      Reword this clause for clarity. "was to accompany the expedition during the first half of their journey."

    10. Not satisfied with the official story of yet another surveying expedition setting out before Lewis and Clark had even returned,

      Unclear -- who wasn't satisfied/who was spreading the wild rumors?

    11. Like his revered American Revolutionary heroes, Pike attempted to make the best of a bad situation. He hired a guide, as well as an interpreter, and

      New point -- begin new paragraph here.

    12. Pike’s 1805 voyage up the

      Map of the area he was to explore?

    13. Seeing an opportunity to suffer for his country thrilled Pike, and his enthusiasm paid off in 1805,

      Was he really looking for an opportunity to suffer? Or was he just looking to serve?

    14. Pike was, overall, a macrocosm of the American experiment.

      Nice choice of point for emphasis.

    15. westward

      western

    16. Pike was, overall, a macrocosm of the American experiment. Raised on the idea of “Republican Virtue,” Pike dedicated his life to his nation, exploring the boundaries of a growing country, dying in battle against the British while serving America one last time.

      Nice intro, although you get a little hero-worship-ish in your final sentences.
