Program:  Forts Henry and Donelson

Presented by Steve Guenzel

This will also be the Round Table’s

Annual meeting


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).





2015-2016 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, forty-four members have paid their 2016-2017 dues, with seven being family memberships, and four new members, for a total of $730.00 collected.  If you have not yet paid, please support the Civil War Round Table of Nebraska!




This month’s program: 


There really isn’t much research available on the specific topic of the Presidents’ Club of 1860-1861.  In place of information on this month’s topic, here are a couple links to sites that may be of interest to students of the Civil War:


Civil War Trust on Casualties of the War


Civil War Trust on Winter Encampments




Hope to see you all on the 26th!
