 The Pasadena Civil War Round Table, aka the Civil War Round Table of San Gabriel Valley, meets monthly in Pasadena to provide a forum for discussion and education about the conflict that so deeply affected the very fabric of our nation.  Our monthly meetings bring to Pasadena many of the leading experts on the Civil War, including noted authors, historians, re-enactors, and Civil War enthusiasts on a wide variety of topics. 

The meetings are free and open to the public. Whether you are just beginning to learn about the Civil War or enjoy a lengthy experience of Civil War study, you will always find something of interest at our monthly meetings. Come join us and experience the thrill of gaining new insights into the conflict that defined our nation. And tell your history-loving friends about us!

The Pasadena Civil War Round Table has no agenda and promotes no single viewpoint. Programs are wide-ranging and focused on any topics pertaining to the Civil War Era.  Membership is open to anyone regardless of race, creed or sex.
