Hide Profile

George Brinton McClellan was born in Philadelphia, PA in 1826. He entered the United States Military Academy in 1842 and graduated in 1846, second in his class of cadets. He was commissioned a brevet second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. In the fall of 1852, he received an assignment to the Department of Texas, with orders to perform a survey of Texas rivers and harbors. In 1853 he participated in the Pacific Railroad surveys to select an appropriate route for the upcoming transcontinental railroad. McClellan surveyed the northern corridor along the 47th and 49th parallels from St. Paul to the Puget Sound. During this assignment, he demonstrated a tendency for insubordination toward senior political figures. Isaac Stevens, governor of the Washington Territory, became dissatisfied with McClellan's performance in scouting passes across the Cascade Range. (McClellan selected Yakima Pass without a thorough reconnaissance and refused the governor's order to lead a party through it in winter conditions, relying on faulty intelligence about the depth of snow pack in that area. He also neglected to find three greatly superior passes in the near vicinity, which would be the ones eventually used for railroads and interstate highways.) The governor ordered McClellan to turn over his expedition logbooks, but McClellan steadfastly refused, most likely because of embarrassing personal comments that he had made throughout. In 1857, George McClellan resigned his commission and became a chief engineer and vice president of the Illinois Central Railroad and later, President of the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad in 1860. When the Civil War broke out, he was commissioned a major general of volunteers and given command of the Ohio militia in 1861. He quickly rose up the ranks and his Civil War service has been discussed at length in other books. After the War, he participated in politics and business. In his later years, he wrote and traveled. He passed away at the age of 58 on Oct. 29, 1885.
