Prattville Dragoons July Camp Meeting Announced

Dragoon Sam Reid Speaks On Financing during the WBTS at July Meeting
            Dragoon Sam Reid, who educated us so well last January on the Emancipation Proclamation and period slavery, will be our speaker again in July.  Sam is a voracious reader on topics of interest to all of us, and this month we will benefit from Sam's reading of a new multi-volume publication, Bloodstains, as well as books by the Kennedy twins of Louisiana.  Sam will compare the two systems of labor, factory vs. slave labor, as well as the money interests whose influence and actions led to the War Between the States.  If you want some little-known but well-documented facts about conditions and events in the U.S. in the 1850s, don't miss Sam's presentation. This month's camp meeting will be held on Thursday July 10th at 7pm at the Shoney's on Cobbs Ford Rd in Prattville.  Come early starting at 6pm to enjoy fellowship and get yourself a delicious Shoney's buffet dinner or their strawberry pie.  This meeting will also provide an opportunity to purchase your Dixie Butt tickets for distribution on August 16th, the Dragoons annual fundraiser.
