Roanoke Civil War Round Table



Who we are and what we do:

The Roanoke Civil War Round Table is a non-partisan organization, whose purpose is to promote and stimulate interest in all aspects of the Civil War period, and to further the serious discussion and study of the conflict.  The Round Table believes in supporting national and regional organizations that preserve battlefield sites.


Meetings are held monthly, September through June, on the second Tuesday of the month starting at 7 pm at Friendship Manor Fellowship Hall on Hershberger Road.  Meetings are open to the public.  Everyone is invited!
