Reference: Georgia: CSU Archives Releases Interactive Map for 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Columbus

From Columbus State University:

The Digital Archives at Columbus State University now contain an interactive map commemorating the Battle of Columbus, often referred to as the last battle of Civil War.

The map’s release coincides with the 150th Anniversary of the battle, which took place on April 16, 1865, just a few days after General Lee’s surrender at Appomattox on April 9, 1865.

A special collection of items from CSU Archives and the Columbus Museum have been digitized and highlighted on the clickable map. Battle phases, troop placements, defensive fortifications, historic photographs and even Columbus Post Commandant Colonel Leon Von Zinken’s original letter telling citizens to leave town have been incorporated into the online exhibit.
