WELCOME TO THE CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE OF DALLAS
No event in our history fascinates Americans as much as the Civil War. Our interest in the war is only natural for “it was the crossroads of our being,” as author Shelby Foote said, “It defines us.”
The Civil War Round Table of Dallas is a diverse group of men and woman of all ages and from varying backgrounds who enjoy learning about the American Civil War. It includes history enthusiasts as well as individuals who are just beginning to develop an interest in the Civil War. It is neither pro-Confederate nor pro-Union in its views, but rather presents topics from both viewpoints of the war.
We meet on the second Wednesday of each month to hear guest speakers, many of whom are nationally known historians, and to discuss a wide range of topics. Membership is open to anyone at the cost of $25 per year.
