Founded in 1957, our Round Table is one of the oldest in the nation. We couldn't ask for a better location: four major battles of the Civil War were fought within 20 miles of Fredericksburg. Our group of about 100 members meets once each month for a catered dinner followed by the presentation of a Civil War topic by a guest speaker - frequently a nationally-known author.

Last month's program by Calvin Zon titled Divided We Fall, The Confederacy's Collapse from Within, was interesting and we learned from it. Some of us were left with the conclusion that the Confederacy's collapse from within was less of a factor than the Confederacy's collapse from without on account of the Yankees.
