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/ 

Latest News on Publication of my Book.

Heard from Ted Savas and Savas & Beatie yesterday. They will be putting out After Gettysburg, Before Grant.  It was hoped publication might be late this fall, but it looks like that will slip into next spring.  The hard work of editing, etc. will begin this summer and I will keep everyone abreast of how that goes.
