Inaugural Posting

Welcome to the Inuagural post of Louisville Civil War Round Table Blog.

Our purpose is to study all aspects of the American Civil War and to promote the interchange of knowledge about it. Our members’ interests in the War between the States are varied and their knowledge ranges from elementary to expert.

Our activities include nine dinner meetings per year (September—May), a one-day Fall field trip, and a five-day Spring field trip. Our dinner meetings feature a speaker who discusses a Civil War topic. Our organization also makes an annual contribution to a Civil War preservation project.

Visit this space to keep up with our meetings, speakers and field trips. This season's speakers have been announced and will include: Glenn LaFantasie, David Hinze, Bud Robertson, David Mulesky, Greg Biggs, Jim Ogden, Frank Williams, and Rick Hatcher.

As to the field trips? More will be revealed in the coming months.
