The mission of the Scottsdale Civil War Roundtable is to inform the public about the American Civil War, contribute to battlefield preservation and assist in the retention in the American memory of one of the most crucial events in our history. With 300 members from throughout the Valley we are one of the largest Roundtables in the United States.
The Roundtable presents nationally known speakers each month from September through May at the Scottsdale Civic Center Library Auditorium and we thank the City of Scottsdale and the Library for their support.
Our monthly events start at 5 PM with an opportunity to meet the speaker, converse with other members, browse our book sale, and watch a video in the auditorium. Our formal speaker programs begin at 6 PM.
The Library Auditorium is located at 3839 N Drinkwater Blvd and there is ample and free parking. All are welcome to attend our events, you do not need to be a member. For those who cannot attend in person, the meetings can also be watched on our YouTube Channel.
