You are part of a growing, dynamic historical association whose mission is to educate its membership and the surrounding community about issues, personalities, and events surrounding the American Civil War (ACW) and, through membership dues and individual contributions, to help preserve ACW-related battlefields, structures, and artifacts.
Pay low annual dues ($30 for up to two people living in the same household). Students are free! Membership dues and donations to the RT are deductible from your federal and state personal income taxes (as are expenses incurred when performing services on behalf of the RT), as the TVCWRT is a registered non-profit educational organization.
Attend eleven monthly presentations each year that cover the range of the American Civil War experiences, and the impact of those experience on us today. This not only includes Q&A with the speaker, but you can mingle with the speaker and other RT members before and after each presentation.
Attend eleven opportunities each year (subject to continuing availability) to win a $50 gift certificate from Nick’s Ristorante.
Attend eleven monthly “Little Round Table” members-only group discussions that delve deeply into selected ACW topics. (Our membership includes several published authors, current and retired professional military personnel, and academics in fields related to the ACW.)
Participate in RT special events organized and presented during the year, either at no admission fee or at a reduced fee. Many of these are aimed at expanding society and cultural topics at other venues that can include, for example, teas, socials, musicals, and mansions, and most with opportunities to wear period clothes and uniforms.
Receive monthly newsletters that provide a wealth of historical facts, book reviews, observations of Round Table members, information about the Round Table’s current and future activities, Civil War-related goings on within the Tennessee Valley, and more! Between newsletters, there are notices of imminent local activities such as educational opportunities at sites, memorial and artifact dedications, and historical strolls.
Receive a TVCWRT membership card and identification tag, as well as the opportunity to purchase Round Table sponsored products, such as t-shirts, caps, other clothing articles and accessories, books, and mugs.
