Siege of Fort Blakely:
On April 9, 1865 beginning at 5:30 p.m., just hours after the surrender of General Robert E. Lee in Virginia, the Battle of Blakeley was fought at Fort Blakeley. As a major news event in its the ongoing coverage of the Civil War, Harper’s Weekly depicted the battle in the scene above in its issue of May 17, 1865. “Probably the last charge of this war, it was as gallant as any on record,” the magazine reported. Historic Blakeley State Park was created in 1981 to preserve this National Register Site and its more than five miles of pristine breastworks.
