From the first shot to the last, the Civil War still captivates many Americans who continue to study its battles, leaders, and grapple with the difficult questions raised by its course and consequences. The Civil War Round Table of the District of Columbia brings together a wide variety of people united by a joint love of history. We study all aspects of the Civil War – military, political, and sociological -  and the impact on our nation. Our speakers and visits to battlefields and historic sites--both in and outside the DC Metro region, add to our knowledge and understanding of this conflict.

We are also committed to preserving our Civil War historic sites and battlefields by taking an active role in ensuring these landmarks are available to appreciate and learn from by future generations. We support this part of our mission through the presentation of our annual Edwin C. Bearss Award to an historic site or preservation organization, as well other contributions throughout the year. In recent years, we have made donations in support of the Daniel Lady Farm in Gettysburg, the Civil War Trust, the Richmond Battlefield Association, Friends of Chickamauga, Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation, Vicksburg, Balls Bluff, the Longstreet Society, Monocacy Battlefield, Shiloh, Bentonville, and the Land Conservancy of Adams County (PA).

We welcome new members.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
