WELCOME TO THE LOS ANGELES CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE

Please explore our website by clicking on the tabs, above.


EXCITING NEWS! OUR NEXT MEETING IS ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21

You are cordially invited to hear our guest speaker, Linda Clarke, tell us the story of the H. L. Hunley.

On February 17, 1864, in the fourth year of the American Civil War, the Confederate submarine, “H.L. Hunley,” sank the Union warship “Housatonic,” in Charleston Harbor. This was the first sinking of an enemy ship, by a submarine, in combat in world history.

  • Who was the “H.L. Hunley” named after, and how difficult was it to invent and design?
  • What was the fate of the two crews who tested it during its development?
  • How did the battle, leading to the sinking of the “Housatonic,” unfold, and why did the “Hunley” mysteriously disappear afterwards?
  • What did it take to find it, who is the novelist and adventurer that discovered it in April 1995
  • How was the H. L. Hunley recovered?
  • What efforts are being made to restore and preserve it?

Come and learn the answers to these questions, and much more.

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.
