In Indian Territory, the Chickasaw Nation becomes the last Confederate entity formally to surrender

The Chickasaw Nation, led by its governor Winchester Colbert, had fought along with much of the Five Nations in alliance with the Confederacy.  Colbert had fled to Texas but returned to surrender his nation to the United States, the final Confederate community to capitulate in the long and bloody American Civil War.  (By John Osborne)
