The GREATER TOLEDO CIVIL WAR ROUNDTABLE is a not-for-profit organization. We are here to teach and learn.

Our main purpose is to provide a forum where anyone with an interest in the American Civil War, regardless of a person'slevel of expertise, can gather together to study, discuss and learn about the various facets of this period of American history -- from the battlefield to the homefront and everything in between. This is accomplished through Monthly Meetings and Luncheon Programs. Our membership is large enough for a diversity of opinions and views, yet small enough for comraderie and friendship to flourish.

The Greater Toledo CWRT also wishes to encourage and stimulate interest in others through various educational programs. Over the years, we've held Civil War Studies Courses at Lourdes College, and our Civil War 101 programs at local booksellers, and have held other activities that are always open to the public and members alike, such as our Cemetery Walks.

The GTCWRT also promotes the preservation of historic sites and objects. These are primarily, but not exclusively, Civil War related and include battlefields, monuments, flags, statues, historic homes and buildings. Though the Civil War era is our primary focus, it is not our only one. We recognize that all items relative to our history and heritage are worth preserving. Some programs and projects that have received our support have included the Civil War Preservation Trust (formerly the APCWS and Civil War Trust), Friends of the National Parks at Gettysburg, the Ohio Civil War Trail Commission, the Fallen Timbers Battlefield Preservation Association, , and currently are holding events observing the American Civil War Sesquicentennial. We have also participated on a more local level with such projects as the restoration of the Monclova Soldiers Monument at Swan Creek Cemetery, Monclova Township, and the "Restore the Glory" project at Willow Cemetery in East Toledo. For more complete information on projects and organizations we support, please visit our Preservation Page.

We are a non-partisan group. "Yanks" and "Rebs" are equally welcome within our ranks. Please take a few minutes to browse through our site. If you like what you see, let us know by either Emailing us or, better yet, coming to one of our meetings!
