Transcript of Civil
Some Battles during the Civil War
-October 4-Battle of Galveston
Barriers to trade continued until the war’s end. Imports of goods from northern factories ceased, transportation networks were damaged, and Union blockades made it difficult for cotton growers to export their crops. Trade with Mexico provided some relief. But without larger trade networks, the residents of Texas suffered from shortages of many kinds.
The end of the civil War
When the war ended with Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865, the official news did not reach Texas for weeks. It arrived on June 19, 1865 – a day now celebrated as Juneteeth – when General Gordon Granger and Union forces landed in Galveston. They had arrived to occupy the state, and to order the emancipation of all slaves in Texas. Reconstruction had begun.
Civil War and Reconstruction
Apr 12, 1861 –May 9, 1865
Reconstruction was not an easy time for Texans. Residents had to pledge their loyalty to the United States, abolish slavery, and declare that secession from the union was illegal. For many former slaves, freedom from bondage provided limited opportunities for building new lives. Anger at the war’s outcome simmered in Reconstruction-era Texas. Freedmen became the primary targets of widespread violence that followed the war’s end. Texan voters did not help to ratify the Thirteenth Amendment (abolishment of slavery) or the Fourteenth Amendment (declaration of citizenship for African Americans). And despite the formal end of slavery in the United States, Texas and other former Confederate states enacted restrictions for African Americans that severely limited their rights.

Thank you for listening!
I got the information from these websites:
-May 13 , 1865– The Battle of Palmito Ranch is fought near Brownsville, the last land battle of the Civil War. After the Confederate's victory, they learned the Western Rebel states had authorized the disbanding of armies, and accepted a truce with the Union forces a few days later
-Feb. 13 – Robert E. Lee is ordered to return to Washington from regimental headquarters at Fort Mason to assume command of the Union Army. Instead, Lee resigns his commission; he assumes command of Confederate forces by June 1862.
-March 16 – Sam Houston resigns as governor in protest against secession.
