General Amiel Weeks Whipple
- As a first
lieutenant in the Army Corps of Topographical Engineers, Amiel led a government
expedition in 1854 to determine the most practical route for the Pacific Railroad.
Instructed to follow the 35th Parallel of north latitude, Whipple traveled east to west. In western Arizona,
he drifted south of the 35th Parallel because of the scarcity of water
between today's Kingman and the Colorado River. He then went upstream to
present-day Needles and continued along the 35th Parallel to Cajon Pass and
the Los Angeles basin.
Later, during the American Civil War, General Whipple was a division commander at
the battles of
Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. He was mortally wounded at
Chancellorsville while defending Washington, D.C. He died in 1863.
