THE LOS ANGELES CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE CORDIALLY INVITES YOU TO OUR NEXT MEETING, ON TUESDAY, JUNE 18th AT 7:00 PM

OUR PROGRAM: “MEET THE ABOLISHIONISTS! FROM SLAVERY TO CELEBRATION Presented by Dr. Dave Schrader

What events, before the war, helped drive opinions towards abolition? How did they persuade so many people to get behind their cause? In this talk, Dr. Dave Schrader answers these questions and more, illuminating the lives and activities of the top five Abolitionists, and their stories.

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.
