The Knoxville Civil War Roundtable promotes "Knowledge, Commemoration and Preservation of our Civil War Heritage." The 27 year old, 150 member organization sponsors monthly meetings with Civil War experts: professional historians, authors and park guides, lecturing on all phases of the Civil War from the East Tennessee area to actions on distant battlefields. Topics have included the battles at Chattanooga, Gettysburg, Vicksburg, and many other military topics as well as leaders, the role of blacks and women and politics.
Visitors are welcome to attend the lecture for a small fee or attend the buffet and lecture for a nominal charge. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday nights of each month at the Bearden Banquet Hall at 5804 Kingston Pike in Knoxville. More information may be found on the web site at discoveret.org/kcwrt
