"The Confederate Breastworks Trail at Historic Blakeley State Park follows some of the best-preserved Civil War breastworks in the South and takes you to the site of the Battle of Blakeley, which is recognized as being the last major battle of the war. The Battle of Blakeley is recognized as the last major battle of the Civil War and one that guaranteed the taking of the last major Southern city in the Confederacy, Mobile. The recently reopened Confederate Breastworks Trail gives you the opportunity to experience the battlefield firsthand and see some of the best-preserved Civil War redoubts in the region."
