Lone Star  1st Texas Regiment a Antietam  Don Troiani artwork  The renowned Texas brigade starved and sleep deprived managed to take the field from the Northerners in perhaps the most vicious and definitely most bloody battle of the entire war. The Texans suffered an 82% CASUALTY RATE in the fray.

The last battle of the Civil War took place in . . . Texas. The Battle of Palmito Ranch was fought on May 12 – May 13, 1865 on the banks of the Rio Grande about twelve miles east of Brownsville, Texas. Ironically, the Confederates won this battle and then, learning of the surrenders to the east and the capture of Jefferson Davis by Union forces, they surrendered the next day.

Th Confederate battle flag was never any more of a racist symbol during the Civil War than the Texas state flag was. And it's sad that biggoted, narrow minded, hateful people have made it that way.
