Capitol Hill Civil War Round Table

Keeping Civil War History Alive in Our Nation's Capital

Home - Capitol Hill Civil War Round Table

 Join us on December 4, 2017, for our Annual Holiday Soiree


Come and socialize with the members of the CHCWRT as we celebrate the winter holidays. Eat, drink, and talk about the Civil War. We will also be having a sale of Civil War books.

While Santa won’t be dropping by the Press Club for this year’s holiday social, we while have a visit from former CHCWRT member Henry Shaffner who will talk about life as a descendant of Stonewall Jackson and his experiences surrounding the production of the film “Gods and Generals.”

CHCWRT members and friends are encouraged to bring two or three Civil War related books that they are willing to part with. These books could be duplicates, “one time” reads, or others that may be part of your personal downsizing. Books will be priced at $5.00 for quick sales. Bring cash or check for your book buying. Books not sold at the book sale may be retrieved by the donor or left for distribution to a local school library. All funds raised go to the CHCWRT treasury to aid in future programing.

The Holiday Social is the time for members and non-members alike to let the Board of Directors know what things you have liked from the last year and which things could have been done better. In addition to a review of the past year, we will also provide a preview of what’s in store for 2018, including some possible day trips.


The presentation is free of charge. While a donation to help defray costs is appreciated, it is not required. 


Join us at 5:30 pm in the John Cosgrove Members' Lounge (formerly the Game Room). The National Press Club menu will challenge your palette and the very capable Club staff will be able to meet any libation request. Please bring cash or checks for payment. Please note that no dinner orders will be taken after 6:30.
