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, 8 May 2013 at 6:15 pm at The Library Center, 4653 South Campbell Ave., Springfield, Missouri. Matt Matthews, a military historian at the U.S. Army Combat Studies Institute, will be our featured speaker. His program will be on the Kansas Red Legs. Mr. Matthews is the author of: We Were Caught Unprepared: The 2006 Hezbollah-Israeli War, The Posse Comitatus Act and the US Army, and the The US Army on the Mexican Border: An Historical Perspective.
