Ammen, a prominent naval officer, retired as a rear admiral in 1878. "As secretary of the Isthmian Canal Commission, 1872-76, he became an earnest and leading advocate of the Nicaragua canal route. He represented the United States at the Interoceanic Canal Congress in Paris, 1879, helped to organize a company which secured temporary concessions from Nicaragua, and in the period 1880-92 published several pamphlets in its advocacy." - D.A.B.
