Acerca de


The purpose of this study was to describe, analyze, and evaluate the role played by the U.S.Army in exploring the trans-Mississipi West, and in particular the role of the Topographical Engineers between the years 1838 and 1863 - a time span that covers the entire independent life of that Cops. In studying the activities the author sought to view the West not as an isolated region but a an integral part of the continental nation whose destiny was of the utmost importance to the other sections of the country; and the Corps itself as an American, rather than a western, institution. The Topographical Engineers performed heroic deeds, and in spite of the anonymity of their army "blues," they were as colorful and as human as any group of explorers whose deeds history is likely to explore.
