Prattville Dragoons Answering the Charge of the Sons of Confederate Veterans
April was a good month for the Prattville Dragoons who continue to answer the charge of the Sons of Confederate Veterans to remember and honor our brave and noble Confederate ancestors who fought and died for their homeland and liberty. All officers of the Prattville Dragoons renewed their commitment to the cause and agreed to serve in the same capacity for the upcoming year. The swearing in of the elected officers which include Commander Chris Booth, 1st Lt. Harold Grooms, 2nd Lt. Stuart Waldo, Treasurer Billy Leverette, Adjutant Wayne Sutherland and Chaplain Tom Snowden was performed at the annual picnic at the Confederate Memorial Park April 14th. Scott Roberson joined Camp 1524 and was also sworn in at the annual picnic. Scott is a relative of former Commander Wyatt Willis. Finally, like Chad Roten who last month agreed to step up and assume the responsibilities of Color Sergeant, Michael Williamson has answered the call and by appointment of Commander Booth, will assume the role of camp Quartermaster which has been ably filled by Jeff Potts and Wayne Sutherland over the past few years.
