President Jefferson Davis and Daughter Maggie Visit Elementary School in Millbrook AL

President of the Confederate States of America, Jefferson Davis (portrayed by Prattville Dragoon Tyrone Crowley) and daughter Margaret Davis Hayes "Maggie" (portrayed by Kerri Waldo) circa 1861 visited Victory Baptist School on Tuesday May 12th  to take the 1st grade class on a time travel adventure to the 19th century where they learned about the types of clothing, transportation, and games that kids played during that era.  Julie Waldo donned a young girls period clothes to show her classmates what they might have worn in that time. They also learned about all the different flags that have flown over the state of Alabama throughout history including the Alabama Secession Flag, Battle Flag, Naval Jack, and Confederate National Flags.

Jefferson Davis and Maggie also visited the 5th grade class where President Davis told the story of his life growing up in Mississippi as a boy and how he became the President of the Confederate States of America in 1861.  The 5th grade students helped to share the flag presentation with their fellow classmates. Some super interest and participation in both classes.  Kerri and Tyrone had a great time sharing this Southern history lesson with the kids at Victory Baptist.
