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

OUR PROGRAM: “Then Christmas Came: The Justification & Condemnation of War in 1862”

How did Americans react to the horrific battles in 1862? What was the impact of the Battle of Fredricksburg, the capstone for fighting in the east, which ended just before the Christmas season? With no end in sight, and the “season of peace and good cheer” upon them, how did Americans reconcile the war and their beliefs? Could they find ways to justify, or condemn, the strife, setting the stage for more conflict in coming years?

COME TO OUR MEETING AND LEARN THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS, AND MORE, AS SARAH KAY BIERLE TELLS THIS FASCINATING STORY. Read More about Sarah Kay

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.
