|Who We Are
The Ann Arbor Civil War Round Table is a group of enthusiasts from the
greater SE Michigan area who are interested in reading, discussing and
hearing about the Civil War.
The Round Table meets monthly
to listen to speakers on various topics from the Conflict. We discuss
issues of preservation, raise money for those issues, and get
information on local, state and national Civil War news. We also hear
from our members on the latest books, movies and TV programs of Civil
War interest; when and where local living history or reenactments may
be taking place; and recommendations on Civil War sites to visit.
The Round Table meets at 7 pm on the second Monday of each month,
September through June.
Our meeting place is:
St. Joseph Mercy Hospital
Administration Building Exhibition Room
5305 Elliott Drive (go to Lot "P")
Ann Arbor, Michigan
(opposite Washtenaw Community College)

OTHERS WITH SIMILAR INTERESTS
Tired of trying to interest your friends in Civil War history? Our
members love history! The "Members

groups on specific topics of the War. In groups such as book

Many of the Civil War sites around the country are in danger of being
lost forever to development and neglect. Monuments and grave sites,
battle flags and battlefields are falling into disrepair; preserving
our past has become expensive. Through our monthly raffles and other
activities, the Ann Arbor CWRT raises funds to donate to various
causes. For example, we raised $1,000 to
preserve the 1st
Michigan Sharpshooter battle flag (first Union flag to fly
over Petersburg, Virginia, signaling its surrender) kept in the State
Capitol, donated funds to the Civil War Preservation Trust
(CWPT). to purchase land at Brandy Station, Virginia,
site of the Civil War's largest cavalry battle, and helped place a
stone monument to the 7th Michigan's actions at Fredericksburg,
Future benefits may include a lending library and member
field trips to Civil War sites.
