Rappahannock Valley Civil War Round Table


Welcome to our web site!

The Rappahannock Valley Civil War Round Table was founded as an organization open to all people interested in learning about the Civil War and in preserving the hallowed ground where the soldiers fought.
We meet on the second Monday of each month.
