"Amiel Weeks Whipple was one of lesser known members of the U. S. Army's explorers club, the exclusive Corps of Topographical Engineers. According to one authority, the Corps contributed more toward winning the West than any other group of comparable size. Lieutenant Whipple spent a large part of his early career surveying and exploring the plains, deserts, and mountains of the Southwest. He died a Brevet Major General of the Union Army at Chancellorsville. E. I. Edwards has edited the official report of Whipple, found in published government documents, concerning a short expedition from San Diego, California, to the juncture of the Colorado and Gila rivers in late 1849. It was part of an international boundary survey made necessary by the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo." ; Great West and Indian Series; 100 pages.
