    Battle of Palmito Ranch
    Early in 1865, both sides in Texas made a gentlemen's agreement that there was no point to further hostilities.[1] By that time, most Union troops had pulled out of Texas for campaigns to the east, such as the Red River Campaign.

Mexicans tended to side with the Confederates due to a lucrative smuggling trade. Why the battle happened remains something of a mystery.
