      That's correct. He was an engineer in St. Louis, although his efforts were
      hampered by insufficient funding from the state and federal government. I
      believe that he was there for 3 years roughly (or at least 3 summers). Many of
      his suggestions, implemented or otherwise, were highly-innovative and alleviated
      much of the flooding around St. Louis. Also see Emory Thomas' "Robert E. Lee"
      for further elaboration on his service there....

      Take care,

      R.E. Lee was in fact stationed in St. Louis, Missouri. This
      was in 1837, when he was a Lieutenant I think. He was in charge of
      redirecting the flow of the Mississippi River, as it was silting up the port
      of St. Louis. Of course, his efforts worked.
