Getting out and seeing our great state, Jeff Masich at the original Camp Whipple, later Fort Whipple dating to 1863 when the US established a territorial government in Arizona during the Civil War after obtaining the Arizona Territory after the Mexican-American War. The original Camp Whipple is at Del Rio Springs where there was and is water (headwater of the Gila River) for the horses on Route 89 approaching Ash Fork north of Prescott. The Fort was named after Amiel Weeks Whipple, a Civil War Union General. Later the fort was moved farther south to Prescott during the war and when mining claims started coming in.
