THE LOS ANGELES CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE CORDIALLY INVITES YOU TO OUR NEXT MEETING, ON TUESDAY, April 16th AT 7:00 PM

OUR PROGRAM: “A WALK WITH MY CIVIL WAR SOLDIERS”

Do you have a Union Army ancestor, whose body was not recovered, so there is no grave to commemorate his sacrifice to save the Union? Did you know that you can get the Veterans Affairs Department to furnish a special headstone for someone killed in the Civil War? Come to our April meeting and hear David Kidd, who is a member of the LACWRT, tell is how he worked with the V. A., and others, to get headstones placed in a cemetery in Maryville, TN, to commemorate two of his great-great-uncles, who served in the Union Army, but whose remains were never found. Also learn from Dave, and his wife, Nina, about the research they did on the missing uncles, and what they found out about their battles, time in a Confederate prison, and their connection to the sinking of the Sultana. Finally, witness the dedication ceremony, on July 21st, 2018, which was conducted by members of a local Sons of Union Veterans Camp, which is named after his great-great-uncles' commanding officer. The event was well attended and reported on by local newspapers, and a TV station. This will be a very different, and informative, presentation.

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.
