Civil War Roundtables

Are you interested in learning more about the war? Do you like sharing time with people who share your interest? Do you want to different speakers give presentations on the war? You might enjoy participating in one of Michigan's Civil War Roundtables. A roundtable is a group of people intersted in Civil War history who meet periodically to hear lectures about various aspects of the history. Sometimes the presenters give a paper. Other times they are authors speaking on their book. Occasionally, you'll listen to a presentation from a uniformed interpreter.

In addition to the meetings, roundtables help support historic preservation by raising funds for historic charities that interst them.
