The Pasadena Civil War Round Table, formerly the Civil War Round Table of San Gabriel Valley, meets monthly in Pasadena to provide a forum for discussion and education about the conflict that so deeply affected the very fabric of our nation.  Our monthly meetings bring to Pasadena many of the leading experts on the Civil War, including noted authors, historians, re-enactors, and Civil War enthusiasts on a wide variety of topics. 

The meetings are free and open to the public. Whether you are just beginning to learn about the Civil War or enjoy a lengthy experience of Civil War study, you will always find something of interest at our monthly meetings.
