One of the functions of the Greater Toledo Civil War Roundtable is to help educate the public about the American Civil War. Two ways in which we fulfill this function are through our "Civil War 101" programs, and the Civil War Studies course offered by ElderVision at Lourdes College. We currently do not have a Civil War Studies course scheduled for this year, but will post information should one be held. Thank you.
The "Civil War 101" programs are aimed at presenting the general public with a painless and fun series of history lessons in one session. Members of the Roundtable give brief presentations on many different aspects of the Civil War, covering military, political and social issues. In past "Civil War 101" programs we have covered such topics as Causes of the War, Medical Care, Life of the Common Soldier--North and South, the Grand Army of the Republic and Ancestor Research. Living Historians have given first person impressions of Union and Confederate soldiers, as well as civilians' stories, such as that of Mary Ann "Mother" Bickerdyke.
If your group or organization would like us to put on a "Civil War 101" program for you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
