Prattville Dragoons Camp Meeting for January 2014

January Meeting Will Offer Discussion of the Emancipation Proclamation
Our meeting this month will take place Thursday, 9 January 2014, at Shoneys, Exit 179 in Prattville starting at 7pm.  Dragoon Sam Reid, a descendant of the Montgomery Family who built Buena Vista House (it was called the Montgomery House till the 1930s), will speak to us on "The Emancipation Proclamation".  This is a most appropriate topic for this month, since the infamous "Proclamation" was issued in January 151 years ago.  Come and hear the very interesting facts you were not taught in school about this "famous" but little-known document.  Most gather early starting around 6pm to enjoy dinner at Shoneys so don't miss this opportunity to fellowship with the Prattville Dragoons and Confederate compatriots.
