Welcome to the Civil War Roundtable of Gettysburg. "The most important Roundtable, in the most important small town, at the most important battlefield, in the most important country in the world."
—Joe Mieczkowski, past president

To: Members of the Civil War Roundtable of Gettysburg

From: Bruce Davis

Thursday evening, June 25, 7:00, Licensed Battlefield Guide Dr. Richard Goedkoop will take us on a virtual tour of the Culp’s Hill Monuments: “What Mean These Stones?” I have personally found the layers of monuments out there a little confusing and was looking forward to Richard walking us through this critical part of the battlefield. I deeply appreciate Richard taking the time and effort to adjust his program to the current situation--but still, there’s nothing like actually being there. Peter Miele cheered me up with this idea. These presentations are being archived online. Sometime in the coming days, I’ll take my too-smart-for-me phone to Culp’s, link into Richard’s presentation, and walk it with him that way.

Of course, I hope you’ll be with us live on Thursday at 7:00. Again, it’s easy to join us. Just click the link on either our Civil War Round Table of Gettysburg Facebook page or website (cwrtgettysburg@gmail.com).

While resigning ourselves to a Virtual Summer, the Round Table Board of Directors is pursuing possibilities for the resumption of in-person meetings in September. As the G.A.R. is hardly conducive to social distancing, we are hoping to find a temporary place where we can spread out. In the meantime, we appreciate your ongoing patience and support.
