Roundtable News (1/21/2017)

The Civil War Roundtable of New Hampshire will meet on Friday, February 17, 2017 at 7:15pm (doors open 6:45). 

We hope you'll enjoy the concept of a Roundtable and join us as a member. Our season runs from September through June each year and right now we remind our members that dues are due. The rate is $25/individual and $40/household. Remember dues help run our group and pay our bills.

February will see something different for the RT meeting! We will be showing the documentary "Gettysburg 1938: the Last Reunion of the Blue & Gray."

As we can reflect on the recent 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, we can also reflect on how veterans of the Civil War felt at the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg,

Over 1800 veterans of Blue and Gray, along with family in many cases, descended upon Gettysburg 75 years after the famous battle.

This program features newsreel footage, interviews and in some cases, audio from radio programs of this special event.

FDR was on hand for the dedication of the Peace Light Memorial on Oak Hill on a hot July day for part of the gathering of these old veterans.

We'd like to address something. Some of our regular members have yet to be seen this season.

If you haven't come, we'd love to see you! And if you want something else from the RT, please let us know.

The PBS show "Mercy Street" is back on for a second season! This drama takes place in a Civil War hospital during the war and is worth seeing! Details here

We have some great programs coming up and invite you to view the schedule!

Those of you new to the CWRT of NH, please know that as we are in winter inclement weather may cause a cancellation of the meetings. Notices will be posted on this web site. But by all means, use you own judgement if you feel unsure of traveling in winter weather.
