"By the time of the American Civil War, the White House had become overcrowded. The location of the White House was questioned, just north of a canal and swampy lands, which provided conditions ripe for malaria and other unhealthy conditions.[28] Brigadier General Nathaniel Michler was tasked to propose solutions to address these concerns.
