Camp News
Adjutant Wayne Sutherland Performs Valuable Service.  During his recovery from recent back surgery, Adjutant Wayne Sutherland has prepared several spreadsheets which will be useful for the Dragoons as we prepare to set flags at Oak Hill Cemetery each April.  In the past we had to copy and re-copy fading charts that showed where Confederate graves are located at the Cemetery; now with these spreadsheets we can print fresh, clean copies each year, making any corrections or new discoveries of Confederate graves as needed.  Thank you, Adjutant Sutherland, for this valuable service to our camp.
Good News From Selma.  The lawsuit filed by KTK Mining, Todd Kiscaden's company whose work at Confederate Circle in Old Live Oak Cemetery was illegally obstructed recently, was settled out of court by the Selma City Council, in favor of KTK Mining.  See Commander's Column for details.
Harold Grooms reads Jefferson Davis Book, reviews online. First Lt Commander Harold Grooms has taken it upon himself to read the two-volume set, Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government, Jefferson Davis's magnum opus, written during his time at Beauvoir after the War.  Commander Grooms has posted his review online at Amazon.com but Jefferson Davis has many admirers so you will have to search to find his review among the many at this website.
