In 1838 Congress established the Corps of Topographical Engineers, an organization whose main purpose was the peacetime fostering of economic growth and national cohesion. This small dedicated group of officers contributed to the development of many aspects of the national transportation network-railroads, highways, and inland waterways. They provided maps for overland travelers and charts for navigators on our Great Lakes. By the time that the organization was abolished during the Civil War, it had played a major part in a period of dramatic development aptly characterized by one historian as a transportation revolution151ocn004834028book19740.79Strother, David HunterPorte Crayon sampler : David Hunter StrotherHistoryLocal historyBiographyPersonal narratives121ocn051175776book20020.92Wermiel, Sara EArmy engineers' contributions to the development of iron construction in the nineteenth century81ocn496619053book2003Ronda, James PBeyond Lewis & ClarkHistory+-+110834047553ocn011949339book19680.66Ryan, Garry DWar Department Topographical Bureau, 1831-1863 an administrative historyHistorySurveysDescribes the history of the War Department Topographical Bureau, from its establishment as an independent War Dept. organization in June 1831 to its merger into the Engineer Department in March 1863. An administrative convenience for the whole of its thirty two years, the Corps of Topographical Engineers planned, supervised, and regulated operations and activities of the small number of officers who performed a variety of duties across America. Topographical engineers explored and mapped the Western territories, removed sand bars, silt deposits, and dredged rivers, deepened harbors and ports, surveyed railroad lines and canal routes, provided topographical surveys and supervised the construction of roads, bridges, lighthouses41ocn042588405book19720.96United StatesReturns of the Corps of Topographical Engineers, November 1831-February 1863Microform catalogs21ocn038117110book19890.47Hess, DemianMinnesota military roads21ocn048429949book20000.47Knetsch, JoeThe impact of the Bureau of Topographical Engineers on the development of FloridaHistorySurveys21ocn237797145art2008Sylvia, Stephen WCivil War insigniaHistory11ocn662491084mixDerby, George HoratioLetters to John James Abert [facsimiles]HistorySet of facsimile letters written from George Horatio Derby to Colonel J.J. Abert, mainly regarding work on the San Diego River levee. Derby writes of his activities at Monterey, his appointment to San Diego, his various expenses, his "long and tedious passage" from New York to San Diego, the results of his levee building survey for the San Diego River, the difficulties of acquiring funding for the project, his troubles trying to carry equipment on horseback, the completion of work on the San Diego River, Abert's unhappiness with modifications made by Derby to original levee plans ("I believe I am the only officer on this coast whose official drafts have ever been dishonored" writes Derby of the incident), his appointment as Aide-de-Camp of General Wool, and his work in the Cascades (Washington state). Derby also writes of being delayed on his travels by the birth of his child aboard a ship and his request to "improve in my profession...by examining the fortifications of Europe" with the hope of achieving the rank of Captain. Also includes a letter to Secretary of War Jefferson Davis in which Derby asks to be sent east to be near his ailing mother, a list of equipment lost in the Punta River, and various plans and estimates relating to the San Diego River11ocn040573177art1999Abert, John JamesHistoryBiography11ocn008159417mix0.47Thom, GeorgePapersSurveysOfficer, U.S. Army, Corps of Topographical Engineers.
