Saturday October 18th saw the 50-year anniversary re-dedication of the Jeff Davis Statue at Confederate Park in Memphis. It was a fine ceremony, with speeches, music, and a rifle salute. Over 35 people attended. The Prattville Dragoons own Tyrone Crowley had a part in the program, to talk about Jeff Davis's time in Memphis, 1869-1877. Weather was perfect and the spirit was good. The Memphis Citizens to Save Our Parks is selling Forrest coins for $10 and Tyrone got a couple to use as door prizes at the Dragoon Christmas Social.
