Dear Members and Friends of the Civil War Round Table of the Ozarks,
The Civil War was a defining event in the history of the United States. The issues, the conflict, the compassion, the brutality, and the personalities from America's deadliest war continue to fascinate us to this day.

Come get to know us, and join with us as we celebrate the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War in 2011-2015! Visitors and students are always free and welcome!
The next meeting will be Wednesday, November 13 at 6:30 p.m. at The Library Center, 4653 South Campbell. Michelle M. Martin will present "I Fear Soon His Cot Will Be Empty: Emma Caroline Morley and the Civil War in Trans-Mississippi West," which looks at the richly detailed Civil War diary of Emma Caroline Morely, a young Ohio woman that traveled thru Missouri days ahead of Confederate General Sterling Price's fall 1864 raid that resulted in the Battle of Westport and the Battle of Mine Creek. Using the diary, Martin will share Morely's experiences traveling and in Fort Scott, Kansas after the Battle of Mine Creek. Her diary gives historians the female civilian perspective about war in the West.
Bring a friend. We'll see you there.
