Prattville Dragoons Camp Meeting Announced for August 2014

Mr. Alan Wallace Will Speak at August Meeting
            At our 14 August meeting, Mr. Alan Wallace, financial advisor and Adjutant of the T G Jones SCV Camp 259 of Montgomery, will make a comparison of conditions in the North and South in 1850 vs. 1860, and how the difference hurt the Confederacy’s chances of success.
            Mr. Wallace's ancestor James W. Wallace was in the 20th Alabama Infantry Regiment, serving in what is best known as the "Pettus Brigade". He was at Vicksburg and Lookout Mountain.  Another ancestor was William Cost, who was in the 10th Alabama Infantry Regiment. He died of typhoid at Chimborazo Hospital in Richmond and is buried at Oakwood Cemetery in that city.
             The camp meeting will be held at 7pm at the Shoney's on Cobbs Ford Road in Prattville and all are welcome.  Come early and join other compatriots who partake of the delicious Shoney's buffet or maybe a slice of strawberry pie.
