Civil War
It was the greatest war in American history.
Over 3 million Americans fought each other- 630,000 became casualties.
It was the only war fought on American soil by Americans, and for that reason we have always been fascinated with The Civil War.
Hundreds of books, movies and documentaries have (and are) being created about this tragic event in our History. With the internet, we now have yet another tool to (carefully) study every single event in this great period of American history.

Welcome to Civil War Round Table of Greater Boston....the 13th oldest Civil Round Table on this Planet, in existence since 1957
A leader in the Education and Preservation of the American Civil War.
