The Endowment Fund of the Hagerstown Civil War Round Table is participating in the Washington County Gives donation program on May 2, 2017. This is a 24-hour online event to raise funds for Washington County non-profit organizations.
Who We Are
The Hagerstown Civil War Round Table was founded in 1956 and
has held eight meetings a year ever since. Currently the Round Table has close
to 100 members from several states. We study battles, leaders, issues,
personalities, politics, logistics, strategy, tactics, blunders and all of the
facets that made up the Civil War.
We demonstrate an interest in public service through support
of battlefield preservation, the presentation of needed books to the Washington
County Free Library's Western Maryland Room, and donations to funds for
historic preservation. Each May we present The E. Russell Hicks/Louis
Tuckerman Scholarship to an outstanding student of American History from among
the high school seniors in Washington County.
Periodically, the Round Table sponsors a field trip to a
Civil War battlefield or site. The field trips are led by a person, usually
from the National Park Service, who is an expert in the area of the trip.
Meeting Time and Place
The Hagerstown Civil War Round Table meets on the fourth
Thursday of the month from September to May at the Homewood Suites located at
1650 Pullman Lane (near Wesel Blvd), in Hagerstown, MD. The meetings start at 6:30 pm with optional dinner (cost $22) followed by a
presentation at 7:30 pm by a nationally or regionally recognized authority in a field
of Civil War history, and may be from the National Park Service, a college or
university, or from another round table.
Dues are currently $25 per year with a one-time initiation fee of $10
which entitles you to a name tag and a year's subscription to The Bugle Call.
