Battle of Palmito Ranch
Palmito Hill Rd, Brownsville, TX 78521, USA
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.

The Silent Wings Museum is located in Lubbock, Texas. It is the only museum in the world dedicated solely to preserving the history of the WWII glider program. Approximately 80% of the United States Army Air Forces glider pilots received their G-Wings at South Plains Army Air Field, which was located on the site of the current Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport. Exhibits focus on the training of the USAAF glider pilots, how gliders were used in support of airborne operations, and the particular history of the Allied glider program. Our restored CG-4A glider is the centerpiece of the Hangar Gallery while exhibits throughout the Silent Wings Museum illustrate other aspects of the history of the American WWII Military Glider Program.
