Fort Worth Civil War Round Table



The Fort Worth Civil War Round Table (originally called The Civil War Round Table of Texas) is a group of individuals brought together by a common interest in the history of the Civil War. The group meets on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, September-May.

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. Once again we have been very fortunate to schedule an impressive group of Civil War experts to speak to us this season. Please see our Events page for details.

The CWRT of Fort Worth 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.

Many thanks!
