Ann Arbor Civil War Round Table (aacwrt.org)
President: Mr. Fred Priebe,
|Who We Are
The Ann Arbor Civil War Round Table is a group of enthusiasts from the greater SE Michigan area who are interested in reading, discussing and hearing about the Civil War.
We have lost our meeting place!
The hospital is going to begin charging for use of the auditorium, beginning in January. The December meeting is still at St. Joseph's, but we are scrambling to find a new home. Most of the talks for the remainder of the year will be at the Saline Library (555 N Maple Rd, Saline, MI 48176), and have been moved to a Thursday night. (Check the news link for the precise dates.) Ideas for a permanent home are solicited. Click here for a map of the area around the library.
Where We Meet
Our meeting place is:
St. Joseph Mercy Hospital
