Hi Jolly was a Syrian cameldriver who came to the United States with 33 camels that were to be used by the U. S. Army in the deserts of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona in 1856.
The camels would have been a great success except for
problems during the civil war and it was decided they would not be used any longer.
The camels were turned loose in the desert of Arizona and survived for several years. Hi Jolly died in Quartzsite and is buried in their cemetery.
