Today, Saturday February 7th is a big day for the Prattville Dragoons as they have a community service project and participation in a community celebratory event for members to participate.
Starting at 8am members will be having another Indian Hills Cemetery workday. Volunteers outside the camp are welcome to come help in this worthwhile community service project to clean and renovate this historic cemetery where a number of Confederate veterans and other noteworthy founding Prattville residents are laid to rest. Indian
Hills is the final resting place for 39 souls including original Dragoon Lt.
A.Y. Smith. A number of graves date to
the 1840s. The Dragoons anticipate the
Indian Hills cleanup and renovation completion in April and Benny has started
planning for a wonderful event to rededicate the cemetery on April 27th
with reenactments, cannon salutes, bonfires, and speeches.
