THE LOS ANGELES CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE CORDIALLY INVITES YOU TO OUR NEXT MEETING, ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20th, AT 7:00 PM

OUR PROGRAM: "My Ancestor: An Andersonville Casualty”

You have certainly heard of Andersonville, probably the most infamous place in the Civil War. But, did you know that Elbert Jones, a young farmer and horse breeder, was one of the Union soldiers who died there? How did Elbert Jones, a man with a young family in Tennessee, end up in Andersonville? What events led up to his enlistment and capture? Why did a little-known battle, lead to the call: “Remember Fort Pillow!”? What was life like in Andersonville? Finally, how is our speaker related to Elbert Jones?

Come to our meeting and learn the answers to these questions, and more, as this fascinating story unfolds.

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.
