Dragoons Indian Hills Cemetery Cleanup Continues in October

The Prattville Dragoons Camp 1524, Sons of Confederate Veterans continued cleaning up Indian Hills Cemetery on Saturday, Oct. 9th.  Dragoons along with volunteers from the community arrived with chain saws, axes, and other tools and consigned a large amount of debris to the burn pile.  The work is hard and far from complete.  Decades of underbrush, insects, poison ivy, and at least one copperhead have all allied to oppose the effort.  Still the work goes on.  Saturday's workers included  Bill Branch, Tom Crowley, Harold Grooms, Stuart Waldo, Tom Snowden, James and Larry Spears, Wayne Sutherland, and Louis Turner.  The objective:  Restore the final resting place suitable for these citizens of Autauga County interred there some of whom fought and died so honorably in the Confederate Army!
