The Baltimore Civil War Roundtable (BCWRT) was organized in October, 1982, and is open to all persons who are interested in the study of the American Civil War. The purpose of the BCWRT is to provide a forum in which to discuss and evaluate various aspects of this unique period of American History. We put our monthly meetings emphasis on guest speakers. We offer opportunities for field trips during the year. The BCWRT also hosts one banquet a year. Our group strongly encourages and supports the preservation of Civil War battlefields and historic sites. Our monthly newsletter, The Old Liner, helps keep members aware of what's happening regarding Civil War related news and events, as well as the speaker and topic for our upcoming month's meeting. We take part in many ceremonies honoring the men and women of the Civil War. We have helped with projects such as the Maryland Monument at Gettysburg and historic President Street Station.
Our membership includes men and women, young and old, with varied backgrounds and different interests. Among the group are teachers and professors, artifact and book collectors, re-enactors, preservationists, participants in "Living History", blue and white collar workers, the "Sons of Union" and "Confederate Veterans", and those who simply want to learn more about the personalities and battles of the Civil War. No matter what your interest in the Civil War, there's a place for you in the Baltimore Civil War Roundtable!
