After Price's failed raid into MO, were there any smaller operations in the Trans-Mississippi Theater? I know about Palmitto in Texas as the last battle of the ACW, but what about the Shreveport area of LA, or southern AR, or Southern Oaklahoma? Considering Price's foray into Missouri ended in December, there had to be something going on in the final six months of the war.

One historian's conclusion:

Except for the operations, long past the end of the war, of guerillas, gangs, or individuals professing to be laboring for the Confederacy, the Civil War west of the Mississippi came effectively to an end when Price crossed the Arkansas River on November 7, 1864.​
