Office of History SealThe mission of the Office of History is to collect, document, interpret, disseminate, and preserve the history and heritage of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. We are a separate office of the Headquarters and are located at the Humphreys Engineer Center on Telegraph Road in Alexandria, Virginia. Our office maintains research collections and a historical holding of several thousand artifacts.

Army Engineers in the American Civil War, 1861-1865

To commemorate the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War, the Office of History is highlighting important Army Engineer contributions with an online exhibit. Over the coming months, we will be adding Engineer biographies, images, and descriptions of campaigns where Engineers served significant roles. Please check back for updates!
