A white-haired Texan was among the Confederate veterans encountered by John Houston Thorpe at a Richmond in 1932. The Texan had fought at Palmito Ranch, Texas, more than a month after Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox. He told Thorpe "Yeah, we whupped the Yankees, but if we'd've knowed y'all had done give up, we wouldn't've bothered."[1]
