Describes 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, lighthouses
The Nation builders : a sesquicentennial history of the Corps of Topographical Engineers, 1838-1863( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book marks an important anniversary in the history of our development as a nation. 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 revolution
