Prattville Dragoons Attend Marion Camp 764 Meeting

Adjutant Wayne Sutherland and Communications Officer Tyrone Crowley accompanied Southwest Central Brigade Commander Bill Myrick to Marion yesterday, where he presented merit awards to two members of Camp #764 there.  The meeting was held at the historic Old Marion Depot, the backdrop behind the lectern being a Battle Flag recently retired from our I-65 Flag pole.  Camp # 764 acquired this flag through I-65 Flag Chairman Larry Spears by making a $100 donation to the Alabama Division at the last Alabama Division EC meeting, held in Prattville.

            The speaker at yesterday's meeting in Marion was H K Edgerton of Asheville, North Carolina, a one-of-a-kind black Confederate activist that you have to see to appreciate.  H.K. Edgerton is the President of Southern Heritage 411 Inc. ( which he founded to educate people about Southern heritage from the perspective of black folks.  The following is an excerpt from the southernheritage411 website:

The President of "Southern Heritage 411" is H.K. Edgerton, a black Confederate activist who works tirelessly to bring the real truth of our heritage to people of all races. H.K. Edgerton has walked thousands of miles carrying his large Confederate Battle Flag through cities and towns and down country roads. He speaks at venues all over the South exposing the many myths of Yankee history and setting the record straight regarding blacks role in the history of the South. H.K. Edgerton and Southern Heritage 411 strive to illuminate the truth as it pertains to the relationships and experiences of blacks and whites in the South as they have struggled together to maintain the principles of a limited, democratic and representative government as espoused by America's founding fathers.

Here are some photographs from the meeting.
