The Battle of Palmito Ranch is considered to be the final battle of the American Civil War. Because of this, it could be argued that one of the casualties, Private John J. Williams of the 34th Indiana Infantry Regiment was the last man killed in the Civil War. The battlefield currently exists much as it did in 1865. It sits on a remote undeveloped area within the Palmito Ranch National Historic Landmark. According to the American Battlefield Trust there is limited interpretation there except for a marker.
Historic Blakeley State Park in Alabama is 2100 acres of pristine nature preserve. The park is of particular interest to American Civil War enthusiasts. In April of 1865 the Battle of Fort Blakeley took place here. The battle for Fort Blakeley was the largest fought in Alabama with approximately 20,000 soldiers involved. Visitors can see several miles of original breastworks and fortifications. The park offers visitors many ways to view these, peruse the trails at your own pace, take a tour, enjoy the bike trails, or even horseback riding.
