WHO WE ARE
The Rappahannock Valley Civil War Round Table was founded in 1989 as an organization open to all people interested in learning about the Civil War and in preserving the hallowed ground where the soldiers fought. We have been a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization since 2012. We raise funds through dues and events to sponsor National Park Service interns, award scholarships and support battlefield preservation.
We hold a monthly meeting on the second Monday of each month which features dinner, a speaker, a short business meeting, a book raffle and time to socialize with your friends. We hear talks by eminent historians, as our members are people who want to know more about our Nation's history. Social time begins at 6:00, optional dinner at 6:45 and the meeting at 7:30.
ABOUT OUR LOGO

1. Flag of the Commonwealth of Virginia
2. Flag of the United States of America
3. First National Flag of the Confederate States of America ("The Stars and Bars")
