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.
We meet the fourth Wednesday of every month (except December, July and August) at the Washington Jepson Alumni Executive Center at 1119 Hanover Street in Fredericksburg.
The bar opens at 5:45pm. Social begins at 6pm. Dinner is at 6:45pm. The program starts around 7:30pm. usually conclude by 9pm.
Reservations are required. Please call (540) 361-2105 or emailing FredCWRT@yahoo.com with a message regarding how many seats you require. Place your reservation request NLT Noon, Friday, the 20th of May. If later you find you cannot attend, please call in your cancellation.
