Overview

One of the least-known battles of the Civil War is the battle at Palmito Ranch in Cameron County, Texas, fought on May 13, 1865, six weeks after the Army of Northern Virginia's surrender at Appomattox Court House. Although the battle had little military significance, given its late date in the war, it had notable social and political repercussions: It was a battle that employed untested black troops; it was fought along the Rio Grande, with Hispanics and Texans fighting for both the North and South; and it resulted in a controversial court-martial investigation of Federal responsibilities for defeat. Phillip Thomas Tucker, chief historian of the 81st Training Wing, Keesler Air Force Base, is the author/editor of several Civil War titles, including The 1862 Plot to Kidnap Jefferson Davis (0-8117-1271-0 and Burnside's Bridge (0-8117-0199-9).
