Prattville Dragoons Monuments

The Prattville Dragoon monument sits on Washington Street on the property of the Prattville Primary School. It was placed by SCV Camp 1524 in 2002 as part of a very respectful dedication service at the time. There are inscriptions on the front and back including all original members of the Dragoons engraved on the monument. 

In this month dedicated to Confederate History and Heritage, perhaps you may be inclined to visit the monument, especially if you have not seen it for a while or have never seen it. There are some concrete benches at the site that the camp installed and a perfect place to sit and reflect on the historical event that occurred there some 154 years ago as the Dragoons met before riding off to war.

There is also a granite monument to the Dragoons placed by the Prattville UDC chapter in 1916 on this same site. The Autauga County courthouse at Court and 5th Streets in downtown Prattville also has a Confederate Soldier statue and monument on the west side of the building.
