Fort Worth Civil War Round Table

About Our Round Table

The Fort Worth Civil War Round Table is a group of individuals brought together by a common interest in the history of the Civil War.

Programs are designed to cover an aspect of the Civil War such as a leader, battle, politician, general or some other topic. Programs last 45 minutes to an hour. Past speakers have included many of the top Civil War scholars such as “Bud” Robertson, Gordon Rhea, Ed Bearss, Wiley Sword, Steven Woodworth, Jack Waugh, Terry Winschel, Allen Guelzo, Kent Masterson Brown, Brooks Simpson, Peter Cozzens and many others.

Who We Are

The Fort Worth Civil War Round Table is composed of people of varying backgrounds. Some are professional historians, but most just have an interest in learning more about the pivotal event in American history.

Membership is open to anyone interested in this subject. We believe in the concept that “there are no sides on a round table” and we do not espouse any particular viewpoint. Regular dues are $30 per year for individuals or families. For those who want to help with covering our expenses for out-of-town speakers we have a Sustainer Membership level of $50 and a Speaker Patron level of $100. Guests are encouraged to attend meetings and learn with our members.

One of the finest collections of American Art is at the Amon Carter Museum – literally across the street from our meeting place. Art has always been one of man’s primary ways of recording (or influencing) history. It stands to reason that the Carter collection includes many pieces related to the Civil War. There is a tremendous amount to learn by viewing and understanding these works.

To make this program even better, we are very fortunate to have Andrew Walker, the Executive Director of the Museum, as our interpreter and guide. Civil War art history is one of his primary interests. He has organized exhibitions and written articles on the subject. Plus he is a very articulate and interesting speaker.

Please make the time to visit the Museum, have dinner and enjoy the program. You will not be disappointed. See you on the 14th!
