WELCOME TO THE LOS ANGELES CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE

Please explore our website by clicking on the tabs, above.


EXCITING NEWS! OUR NEXT MEETING IS ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 19th

You are cordially invited to hear our guest speaker, Dr. Dave Schrader, whose topic will be, "MEET THE FIRE-EATERS."

Ever wonder how a typical Southerner was led to support secession? Long before the war, numerous pro-South opinion leaders shaped the news, attitudes, and meetings to get Southerners behind the cause. Who were these guys, called the Fire-Eaters? What messages did they use? What events before the war helped them drive opinions into the action of secession? How did they manage to persuade so many people to give up their peaceful lives? In this talk, Dr. Dave Schrader answers these questions and more, describing the amazing lives and most note-worthy activities of the top 5 Fire-Eaters.

Come and learn the answers to these questions, and much more.

The Los Angeles Civil War Round Table was founded in 1977. Over the years, interest waned, but the Round Table was revived in the 1990’s, and it has had a sustained membership, of about 30, for the last several years. We are a very welcoming group, and our meetings are open to the public, free of charge. You need not be a Civil War expert, just someone who is interested in our Nation’s history.

COME JOIN US, AND BE ENLIGHTENED AND ENTERTAINED ABOUT A WIDE VARIETY OF TOPICS REALTED TO THE CIVIL WAR ERA.
