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

OUR PROGRAM: “RAILROADS OF THE CIVIL WAR”

What was the state of railroad technology in the United States in 1860? How well established were the railroads, and what was their main purpose? How were warfare tactics changed because of the availability of railroads? What were the long-term impacts on the conduct of warfare resulting from the exploitation of railroads during the Civil War?

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.
