In 1824 James Bridger, fur trader and guide, discovered the Great Salt Lake. Between 1846 and 1848, the hegira ofo Mormons from Illinois made the basin of Salt Lake the focus of a new emigration movement, and public interest in the Utah country increased. In 1849, Captain Howard Stansbury of the Corps of Topographical Engineers, United States Army, was ordered to begin a systematic survey of the region. With a party of eighteen men, he began the work of mapping the area, a task which he did not complete until 1850. The results of that survey were embodied in a report published in 1852 as Senate Executive Document 3, 32nd Congress, Special Session of the Senate. It was later retitled and published as this book
