Note that meeting dates and places could change as special events may be scheduled (e.g., we probably would not stage a ‘cannon shoot’ on a Wednesday evening at Legacy Estates).







2019-2020 dues are now due!  Please bring your cash or a check for $15.00 ($25.00 for a family membership) to the meeting, or you may mail it to Civil War Round Table, 1227 Lincoln Mall, Lincoln, NE, 68508.  So far, thirty-two members have paid their 2019-2020 dues, with four family memberships, and one new member for a total of $510.00.00 collected. 





Bad News – Good News: 


The bad news:  Dr. Lon Keim has advised the Round Table that he paid $1,480.88 to repair the flag that was accidentally dropped when he presented to the CWRT of Nebraska in September of 2018.  This is being considered by the Board and its recommendation will be presented to the Membership at the February meetings.


Good news:  LB 850 was introduced in the Legislature on the first day of this Session.  If passed, it should be the required “state request” for a monument to the First Nebraska at the Fort Donelson Battlefield.  The bill was heard by the Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee on January 30.  The bill was voted out of the committee unanimously and now its fate depends upon it being made a “priority” bill.
