Prattville Dragoons SCV Camp 1524 Meeting for May

From the Dragoons Camp Dispatch newsletter:

                May Meeting – Prattaugan Museum Visit 
For our May meeting on Thursday 9 May, we will meet and eat as usual at 6 p.m. at Shoney's Prattville, then will go to Old Downtown Prattville for a visit to the Prattaugan Museum/Heritage Center.  The Museum has an important connection to the Dragoons, because the initial meeting that resulted in the recruiting of the young men who formed the Prattville Dragoons was held in the front room of the house that is now the Prattaugan Museum.  This room is called the "Dragoon Room" and offers displays of Confederate paraphernalia.  Our audio version of the "History of the Prattville Dragoons" plays on a computer over in the corner, for visitors to hear.  We will also get a tour and look at the other rooms and exhibits in the Museum.  If you haven't been to Prattville's charming little museum, this is your chance.  Our guide for the tour will be Museum Director Rachel Deaile (dee A lee).  The Museum is located at 102 East Main Street in Prattville, and the phone number is 361-0961.  If you don't want to eat that night, just come to the Museum at 7 p.m.
