My third great-grandfather served in the Revolutionary War. On his pension his rank is listed as Dragoon, which is a name for cavalry soldier.  After the war all of the cavalry units were disbanded.  His wife Joanna received $50 twice a year from 1836-1850 to compensate for his service. He married at the age of 26 and died in South Carolina at the age of 60.

Next Saturday, 5 April, 2014 will be a big day in Dragoon, Arizona.  The first run in Texas Canyon is organized to coincide with a food festival, a wine and brew fest, and a spring fling.  Dragoon is  just about an hour’s drive away from Tucson on I-10.  The Amerind Foundation Museum is primo Native art displayed perfectly.  The collections are impressive, and the galleries designed with the greatest of care.  If you have not visited the museum next Saturday is a great day to do it.  Admission will be free for the day, and the festivals will round out the activities.  Runners should register early if they want to compete in the trail run.
