One last note on the Western Beale Wagon Road: Driving Historic US 66 from Kingman, AZ to Oatman, one will drive thru "Sitgreaves Pass" which is a historically known topographic naming error by staff in the US Army. Union Pass on AZ 68 about ten miles to the north was really Sitgreave's Pass. While Beale did explore thru the old US 66 mountain pass on his way west to Fort Mohave on the Colorado River, this route was never used very much, and the northern route thru Union Pass (Sitgreaves choice) became the main commercial and immigrant wagon road after the Civil War between California and Northern Arizona.
