The American Civil War Round Table (UK)

A defining time in America's history

Welcome

We’re a group of mostly British-based members, who get together and share information about all aspects of one of the greatest conflicts of the 19th century.  You will find on our site details of our education, preservation and social activities, and articles taken from our thrice yearly magazine ‘Crossfire’ that is free to members. If after browsing our site you would like to join us we’d be very happy to enrol you, whether you are blue or gray or simply neutral.

Why all this interest in American events of the past with so much history of our own? Surprisingly, we are the first of the Civil War Round Tables set up in the 1950s – even before our many fellow societies in the United States.  Since then we have maintained this country’s natural affinity with events of the Civil War.  With many of its participants hailing from these islands it is perhaps not surprising that British viewpoints have been brought to bear on this all-American affair.

 

"It is easy to see that, under the sharp discipline of civil war, the nation is beginning a new life. "

Abraham Lincoln

"I know Mr Davis thinks he can do a great many things other men would hesitate to attempt. For instance, he tried to do what God failed to do. He tried to make a soldier of Braxton Bragg, and you know the result."

General Joseph E Johnston
