Invitation to Hear Dragoon Descendant

The Autauga County Heritage Association is sponsoring a presentation at the Prattaugan Museum, 102 East Main Street (across from City Hall, same side of Main Street) at 5:30pm on Thursday April 25, 2013.  The Museum will be open to host the event and the public and all Prattville Dragoons are encouraged to attend this talk.   

            The speaker is Kiana Davenport, a novelist who lives in Hawaii and New York.  She is descended from Warren Davenport, a private on the original roll of the Prattville Dragoons, and has researched him and Dragoon history.  She wants to come and talk about the Dragoons, and Daniel Pratt's support of them.  Most Dragoons may be familiar with these details, but the Prattville community and the Dragoons should support this effort by the Museum to promote Confederate and Dragoon history.  Dragoons Communication Officer Tyrone Crowley is a member of the Autauga County Heritage Association and send a personal invitation to this event for all.  The Dragoons are also planning to visit the museum as part of the camp's May meeting, so this will be a preview for that visit.

            Kiana Davenport is the daughter of a US Navy man from Alabama, Braxton Bragg Davenport, who married a native Hawaiian.  Through her mother she has Hawaiian and Chinese ancestry.
