Unaware of Robert E. Lee's surrender,
General James H. Wilson's Union
Cavalry swept across Alabama as boys
and old men tried to defend Columbus.
Cannon from the C.S.S. Chattahoochee,
similar to nearby replicas, were mounted
here to protect the line. On the
night of April 16, 1865, Columbus
fell in what would be the last
significant battle of the war. The
next day, Union troops burned the
city's cotton warehouses and
industries but spared the grist mills.
