James W. Abert was an important explorer and scientist who called Kentucky home during the 1850s and for most of the period following the Civil War. At various times in his life Abert served as a government explorer in the southwest, an engineer for Ohio River navigational improvements, a military topographical engineer in the Mexican, Seminole, and Civil wars, a U.S. Examiner of Patents, a professor at two universities, and a land developer in northern Kentucky. His important contributions to the nation and to the state are often overlooked by scholars.
