Prattville Dragoons Camp Meeting Announcement for July 2013

The Dragoons will hold their monthly camp meeting on Thursday July 11th at 7pm at the Shoney's on Cobbs Ford Road in Prattville AL.  Come early to enjoy the delicious Shoney's buffet of which many folks partake before the meeting, starting around 6pm.  The following is the announcement in the July Dragoons Camp Dispatch for the meeting:

Local Confederate Site To Be Discussed at July Meeting
Will Dismukes of Millbrook/Coosada, who had to postpone his visit originally set for last month, will speak to us at the July meeting about a site that has given up some Confederate memorabilia.  Will's family owns land in the Millbrook area which served as a campground for Confederate soldiers during the War Between the States.  Will has excavated a number of items which he will show and tell us about.  Will is considering joining the Dragoons, so a warm welcome and good participation for his presentation is encouraged. Will is a student at Faulkner University in Montgomery AL and has volunteered at the Prattaugan Museum in downtown Prattville which has a fabulous display of Confederate and 19th century artifacts from the founding of the town by Daniel Pratt. All camps need younger members such as Will to keep the Confederate memory alive and the Charge answered by each generation.
