The Los Angeles Civil War Round Table is an organization dedicated to the study and preservation of U.S. Civil War heritage. Founded in 1977, the organization is a very welcoming group that holds meetings open and free to the public. You need not be a Civil War expert, just someone who is interested in our Nation’s history.

We meet monthly, except July and August, on LA’s West Side. Our meetings last 90-minutes to two-hours and are full of lively discussion, not only from the presenter, but from our well informed members and guests. You will be enlightened, entertained and educated.
