  You need to do a lot more reading because you're WAY off base with your statement that the skirmish at Picacho Peak was the LAST battle in the Civil War. Picacho Pass took place on April 15, 1862, which was very early in the war.

  If you had said that it was the land battle that took place the farthest west, then you would have been correct.

  In actuality, the last land action took place in Texas at Palmito Ranch on May 13, 1865. That was also a Confederate victory.
