Dragoons Setting Flags on Confederate Veterans Graves at Oak Hill Cemetery in Prattville March 30th
As April is Confederate History Month there are many events planned for observance of this important Sesquicentennial period. As the lead event, on March 30th at 8:30am, the Dragoons will again set flags on the Confederate veteran graves at the Oak Hill Cemetery in Prattville. This is a great opportunity to get involved with an important part of our camp's annual efforts to further the Cause. Undoubtedly someone or two will bring some doughnuts or other morning breakfast refreshments and the fellowship and camaraderie is wonderful as we honor these courageous Confederate veterans by placing Battle flags at their final resting place. We have maps which provide the location of all the Confederate graves in Oak Hill and with typical participation, all the flags are set within an hour or so. Flags are also available to distribute to anyone wishing to take some to place on other graves at other cemeteries, perhaps of your Confederate ancestors. The officers of the Prattville Dragoons encourage everyone who is interested to join us for this flag setting event and the sodality with fellow compatriots.
