You are cordially invited to attend our meetings. We meet on a monthly basis to discuss the events, customs, military actions, and other activities relating to the Civil War Period (1861-1865). We try to stimulate and encourage interest in studying, preserving and protecting landmarks, battlefields, earthworks, relics, and collections of data from that era.
