The Last Battle of the Civil War

The Russell County Courthouse stands on a hill overlooking the Chattahoochee River. On this spot in 1865, the last battle of the American Civil War was fought.

Welcome to City Daily Photo Blogs!

I had forgotten where the last battle of the war was! I just know that the Battle of Selma was among the last. Thanks for sharing this bit of history.
