 The Sarasota Civil War Round Table

Serving Sarasota and Manatee Counties Florida


The purpose of the Sarasota Civil War Round Table is to study all aspects of the American Civil War and to promote the interchange of knowledge about it. Our members’ interests in the War Between the States are varied and their knowledge ranges from elementary to advanced.

Our activities consist of nine meetings per year (September–May). Our meetings feature a speaker who discusses a Civil War topic.


We welcome new members and the annual dues are $30 per family.

If you are interested in becoming a member or attending a meeting as a guest, please contact Pat McInerney at 941-351-5022


We meet eight times a year in the Adult Education Building at Grace  Church, 8000 Bee Ridge Road, Sarasota, Florida 34241  The meetings are normally held on the second Tuesday of the month.  The January 2018 Meeting Location will be announced later.
