7086. JOHN NEWTON born in Norfolk, Va., August 24, 1823; died in
New York City. May 1, 1895.

The most brilliant achievement of Gen. John Newton's career as an engineer
was the removal of the dangerous rocks at Hell Gate in the East River channel
in New York.

He was a graduate of the West Point Military Academy, and ranked second in
a class of fifty-six, which contained a number of men who afterward became
distinguished as generals in the Civil War. His high standing enabled him
to choose an assignment in the engineer corps of the army, and he was com-
missioned second lieutenant of engineers and appointed assistant professor of
engineering in the military academy. Until the opening of the Civil War he
was engaged in various engineering enterprises in the army, serving in the
construction of fortifications and other works along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts,
and in 1858 acting as chief engineer of the Utah expedition. He was the
chief engineer of the Department of Pennsylvania when the war began, and in
August, 1861, he was engaged in constructing the defences of Washington.

He received the rank of Brigadier General of Volunteers and served in the
Army of the Potomac in the Peninsular Campaign. At Fredericksburg he led
a division, and when Gen. John E. Reynolds was killed before Gettysburg,
General Newton succeeded to the command of the first corps. In command of
the second division of the fourth corps of the army of the Cumberland he
participated in the invasion of Georgia, and took part in the engagements that
culminated in the capture of Atlanta.

During the war he received the brevets of major general of volunteers, and
brigadier general and major general in the regular army and after the war
became lieutenant-colonel of engineers. He was made superintending engineer
of the construction of the defenses on the Long Island side of the Narrows
entrance to New York harbor, and was appointed to direct the improvements
of the Hudson River and of the fort at Sandy Hook.

The East River forms a large portion of the water front of New York and
Brooklyn, and is the most important avenue of coastwise trade in the United
States. Its channel is scoured by strong tides which keep it permanently free
from shoals of sand and mud, but in the strait called Hell Gate there were
immense obstructions in the form of numerous reefs encroaching on the channel
and giving rise to violent, currents which made navigation extremely hazardous.
In 1851 a French engineer named Maillefert was engaged to remove these

obstructions. He applied a process of surface-blasting whicb succeeded in
removing from the rocks the projecting prominences of small area, but were
of little effect on the main rocky structure.

Soon after the war General Newton was instructed to make an examination
of Hell Gate and present a plan to remove the obstructions. His plan was
submitted in 1867 and thereafter for nearly twenty years he was engaged on the
problem of the destruction of the reefs of Hell Gate. His plan was to sink a
shaft upon the rocky surface and from it excavate tunnels in the rock in a
radiating direction under the river and connect them with concentric galleries;
then, after removing from the interior as much of the rock as possible without
danger of letting in the water, to blow up the rock and supporting columns.
These plans involved the solution of novel engineering problems and the
invention of new apparatus, but they were carried out with complete success.

Hallet's Point was blown up in 1876 and Flood rock in 1885, the explosions
producing no great, noise or disturbance and causing only the slightest damage
in adjacent buildings.
