OXFORD, Miss. (WCBI) – James Meredith was recently honored with a Freedom Trail Marker on the Mississippi Ole Miss Campus.

Sunday marks the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Oxford which was sparked by a riot that broke out over the pending admission of it’s first black student at an all-white university.

There was rebellion against the federal government over the topic, that left the Ole Miss campus at war against each other.

Many say this instance in time marks the last battle of the Civil war.
