Dear Members and Friends of the Civil War Round Table of the Ozarks,
The Civil War was a defining event in the history of the United States. The issues, the conflict, the compassion, the brutality, and the personalities from America's deadliest war continue to fascinate us to this day.
Are you interested in the American Civil War? Do you enjoy programs about the war? Dedicated to developing the known history and a better understanding of this unique war, our organization is just what you've been seeking. Come get to know us, and join with us as we celebrate the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War in 2011-2015! Visitors and students are always free and welcome!
The next meeting will be Wednesday, June 14th, at 6:30 p.m. at the Library Center, 4653 South Campbell. Our speaker this month is Dr. Kristen Oertel, from the University of Tulsa. She has written three books, the first Bleeding Borders, examines how Native Americans, African Americans and women shaped the conflict between proslavery and antislavery settlers on the Kansas-Missouri border immediately before the Civil War. The second, Frontier Feminist, narrates the life of Clarina Nichols, a remarkable woman who advocated for temperance, antislavery and woman’s suffrage in the 19th century. Her latest work, Harriet Tubman: Slavery, the Civil War and Civil Rights in the 19th Century, chronicles the life of this iconic leader of the Underground Railroad.
Bring a friend. We'll see you there.
