The York Civil War Round Table is a non-profit organization that seeks to promote, interpret, preserve, and protect the Civil War heritage of York County, Pennsylvania, through the education and exchange of information with its members and the general public. Membership is free and open to anyone interested in learning more about the American Civil War.
Founded as the White Rose Civil War Round Table, the York CWRT holds monthly meetings the third Wednesday of every month except December at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium of the York County Heritage Trust’s Historical Society Museum at 250 E. Market Street (the historic Lincoln Highway) in York, Pennsylvania. Each meeting features a guest speaker talking about a Civil War topic of local or national interest. There is no admission or membership requirements to attend any of these meetings.
Other scheduled events include an annual clean-up day at Gettysburg National Military Park as part of the “Adopt-a-Position” program. Members and guests tidy up the area around the 102nd Pennsylvania / 62nd New York on the John Weikert / Althoff Farm Lane. A free battlewalk with local experts is usually included to round out the day. Other regularly scheduled battlewalks by Dr. Charlie Fennell occur in the autumn.
