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, OCTOBER 17

You are cordially invited to hear our guest speaker, Mr. Walter Stahr, who will be talking about Edwin Stanton, Lincoln’s Secretary of War.

Who was Edwin McMaster Stanton?

  • How did a lifelong Democrat become the first Republican President’s Secretary of War?
  • Why was Stanton so controversial, in life, and after death?
  • Why was Stanton accused of many “errors and crimes,” and “some of the more shameful injustices in American history?”

Come and learn the answers to these questions, and much more. Also, learn why Walter Stahr’s recently published book, “Stanton—Lincoln’s War Secretary,” has been called “exhaustively researched,” “well-paced,” “forcefully written,” “exceedingly important,” and “the new, standard biography of the ill-tempered man who helped save the Union.”

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.
