The Frankfort Civil War Round Table is a group of citizens interested in the history of the War Between The States.  They enjoy scholarly examination of the war, and they delight in the congenial discussion of issues related to that conflict.

Meetings are generally held the first Monday in March, June, December and the second Monday in September.

Meetings begin at 7:00 PM at Paul Sawyier Library, 319, Wapping Street, Frankfort, KY, .

During 2014 and 2015 the Frankfort Civil War Round Table, Capital City Museum and Paul Sawyier Library are sponsoring each year four
FREE talks on the Civil War in Kentucky.

The general public is welcome.
