This book grew out of a topic in the Tennessee Valley Civil War Round Table’s (TVCWRT) spin-off discussion group, the “Little” Round Table Thirteen Wore Gray, The Rest Blue

A message from our President:

On behalf of your Tennessee Valley Civil War Round Table board of directors–welcome to our Web site. As your president for 2014-2016, I invite you to explore our site, visit our meetings, and get excited about our special history. The American Civil War has something for everyone at every level. It’s not just about the battles: it’s about music, medicine, foods, families…the list is endless.

INVITATION and REMINDER: The TVCWRT Board and I hope you’ll attend our finale for 2014. We’ll meet at the lovely antebellum Cooper House on Saturday, November 15, at 405 Randolph Avenue, near the court house square in Huntsville. Doors open at 5:30; speaker starts at 6:30. Remember this meeting is NOT at the Elks on Thursday, November 13. As always, casual dress is appropriate–or something fancier if you wish, since Cooper House is a nonsmoking venue.

Here’s an update: A number of us have decided to wear our period dresses or period uniforms. If you missed our Sesquicentennial musical gala on July 12 at Cooper House, here’s another chance to join in the spirit of the times. If you’d like to borrow or rent something to wear, please call me for suggestions at 256-293-0075. Even just old gloves or fans–even better, new beards–are welcome! However, period looks are not required.

Come early for a book signing and a free cookies-and-punch reception with our renowned speaker Dr. Craig Symonds. His topic will be “Lincoln and His Admirals.” No other food or drink will be sold. Plenty of free parking is nearby on Randolph and in the church lots on Clinton. We’ll have helpers on site by 5:00 PM to direct you.

Thanks for supporting the Round Table all year and hope to see you soon,

Carol Codori

President

If you would like to make a presentation, please get in touch with me or our director of programs. If your passion is already the Civil War, or if you’re just starting your journey into that past, TVCWRT wants you! Thanks again for visiting our site.  I look forward to hearing your suggestions and comments, and please do join us!
