Today is the 149th Anniversary of the Battle of Palmetto Ranch, the last land battle of the War Between the States.  Fought just east of Brownsville, Texas on May 12-13, 1865.  Despite many post war myths, the Texas forces were well aware of Lee's surrender, Johnston's imminent surrender and Lincoln's assassination.  The South won this last battle.  To learn more about it, be sure to read my book: The Last Battle of the Civil War: Palmetto Ranch.  It is available on Amazon http://aftergettysburgbeforegrant.blogspot.com/
