Prattville Dragoons Camp Meeting for January 2012

The Prattville Dragoons will hold their monthly meeting tonight, January 10th at 7pm at the Shoneys on Cobbs Ford Rd.  Many arrive early to enjoy the Shoney's buffet.  Please join us for an enjoyable and educational time with fellow compatriots.

January Meeting Will Feature Talk On Nathan Bedford Forrest
          At our January meeting, our speaker will be Dr. Brandon Beck, Lt Commander of the Caledonia Rifles SCV Camp 2140 in Mississippi, who will present a talk on another great Confederate, General Nathan Bedford Forrest.  Dr. Beck is a retired college professor and Director of the Civil War Institute at Shenandoah University, Winchester, Virginia.  He is an author of ten books on WBTS history, including one on General Forrest and the Battle of Okolona, and a recent one on General Cullen Battle and the Third Alabama Infantry, published by the University of Alabama Press.  He says he enjoys doing these presentations as a part of the SCV's educational mission, so bring a friend and expect to be educated.
