We are the Civil War Round Table of Dallas

We are a very friendly group of Civil War history enthusiasts who come from a wide variety of backgrounds. We have held more than 265 meetings over 25 years and are still going strong. Our membership is unique in that we count among our members nationally known historians including Jack Waugh, Dr. Steven Woodworth, Dr. Glenn Linden and Scott Bowden. Our average attendance runs between 40-60 persons.

Meeting Format

We love our speakers!

Our meeting format is designed to give maximum time to the speaker with a minimum of announcements. The typical presentation begins at 7:00pm and runs about 50 minutes. A 10 to 15 minute question-answer time is held after the presentation. We encourage authors to bring copies of their books for sale to interested members.

Please try to arrive just before 6:00pm. That will give you time to relax and enjoy your meal prior to the presentation.
