The Foothills Civil War Roundtable


All programs run from 6-8 p.m., and include a social, dinner, and program.

What is the Foothills Civil War Roundtable?  Civil War Roundtables exist all across the country.   The first one was organized in Chicago, Illinois in 1940.  They may not be commonly known to the public due at least in part to the fact that there is no national office or program to promote them.   Good ideas and initiatives are often imitated and this is the case with these roundtable groups.  While a typical meeting will normally have a speaker, discussion or other program, this organization has no agenda and promotes no single viewpoint.  Programs will be wide-ranging and focused on any topics pertaining to this period of history as they might relate to the Civil War itself.  Membership is open to anyone regardless of race, creed or sex. 

The Foothills Roundtable was organized in September, 2004. The name was selected to promote inclusiveness and ownership to all people in the Upstate and surrounding region who might have an interest in this topic, the organization or its programs.
