Prattville Dragoons Announce Camp Meeting for January 2015

January Meeting

The January camp meeting will be held on Thursday January 8th at 7pm at the Shoney’s on Cobbs Ford Road.  Come early to enjoy the Shoney’s buffet for dinner with fellow compatriots.
Henry Howard will be the guest speaker for the January camp meeting.  Henry is a member of the Montgomery Capt. Henry C. Semple Camp #2002 and volunteers at the First White House as a guide, welcoming visitors in period dress. Everyone who attended the Dragoons Christmas Social surely appreciated the performance Henry provided as Santa Claus at the event, reading “The Night Before Christmas”, confronting the Grinch who attempted to disrupt the festivities and, handing out doorprize gifts. 
Henry will make a presentation on Confederate Medicine.  Using period surgical instruments, he will demonstrate a field amputation. Henry is a Civil War Re-enactor who portrays a Confederate Surgeon and Medical Inspector with the rank of Colonel and is the Alabama Division State Surgeon.  Surely a fascinating meeting is promised.
