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
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.
