Dragoons to Set Flags at Prattville's Oak Hill Cemetary
The SCV Camp 1524 Prattville Dragoons will again be setting flags at the graves of all the known Confederates at Prattville's Oak Hill Cemetary as part of the camps preparation for Confederate History and Heritage Month in April. The cemetary is located off Wetumpka Street, entrance just past the railroad tracks near downtown Prattville. Everyone interested in participating in this meaningful camp activity, we will meet this Saturday morning 31 March at 8 a.m. Come on out and help; we are usually done in less than an hour, thanks to the planning and organization of Adjutant Wayne Sutherland. A best practice if to bring the largest Phillips screwdriver you can find, to poke holes in the ground for the flags. Looking forward to seeing everyone, Dragoons and others there at this, the first of many activities planned for April including the camp picnic at Confederate Memorial Park just north of Prattville and also the wreath laying at the Prattville Primary School to celebrate Confederate Memorial Day.
