Welcome to Frederick County Civil War Round Table!

We are located at the crossroads of the Civil War

Our Mission
  • To cultivate and preserve Frederick County's Civil War heritage and broaden the understanding of the history of the Civil War Era and its impact on our nation
  • To explore the many facets of the Civil War from the battlefield to 1st person narratives, including guest lectures by writers and historians
  • To support historical projects and activities aimed at increasing public interest and appreciation of our Civil War history, both locally and nationally

The Frederick County Civil War Roundtable (FCCWRT) meets at 7:30 PM on the third Thursday of each month from September thru May. The Roundtable meets at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine (NMCWM) 48 East Patrick Street in Downtown Frederick, Maryland 21701. The meetings are open and free to the public.
