In early June 1869 Lieutenant George Wheeler was ordered to organize a reconnaissance party and perform thorough and careful reconnaissance of the country south and east of White Pine, Nevada, to the head of the Colorado River. This led to the establishment of the U.S. Surveys West of the 100th Meridian, also known as the Wheeler Surveys. Wheeler's tasks were to obtain data for a military map, evaluate the possibility of building a wagon road, and select sites for military posts. Two years later he was ordered to explore and map the area south of the Central Pacific Railroad in eastern Nevada and Arizona.
