Prattville Dragoons Host School Visit
Compatriot Tyrone Crowley of SCV Camp 1524 along with Camp Commander Waldo's wife Kerri visited the 1st and 3rd graders at Alabama Christian Academy in Montgomery AL. Tyrone was dressed in period attire as President Jefferson Davis and Kerri was dressed in a period gown depicting his daughter Maggie. Kerri made the presentation to the first graders including both classes, taking them on a time machine journey back to 1861. The students were told about the history of Alabama from the era including their home in Montgomery, the First White House of the Confederacy. Tyrone led the presentation to the 3rd graders from both classes including relating the childhood of Jefferson Davis and leading to his service as President of the Confederate States of America. The teachers and students thoroughly enjoyed this living history and the girls especially loved the hoop skirt ball gown worn by Mrs. Waldo. The children asked many questions demonstrating their interest and one teacher expressed his appreciation saying that bringing history alive was wonderful for the kids learning experience.
