The Col Henry Ryerson Civil War Round Table was organized in September of
2003 as a New Jersey Non-profit corporation. The purpose of the Round Table
is to gather together people who have an interest in the American Civil War. The
group holds it's meetings on the third Tuesday of the month, with no meetings in
June, July, August and December. The meetings are held in the Meeting Room
of the Sussex County Library Main Branch located at 125 Morris Turnpike,
Newton N.J. At it's monthly meetings the group discusses and studies all aspects
of the War's history, including the causes, battles, Southern and Northern
political ideology and prominent participants. It's goal is to promote and further
stimulate interest in all aspects and phases of the Civil War period, with an
emphasis on the contributions of the State of New Jersey.
The Round Table participates in the Adopt-A-Position Program at the
Gettysburg Battlefield Park in Gettysburg PA. We have adopted two 12th NJ INF
positions on the Battlefield. We perform a "Cleanup" on these two positions in
the Spring and Fall of the year.
Membership levels per year are: Full Member $25, Family Membership $40 (all
members of a family including children up to the age of 21 still living at home).
Voting members must be at least 18 years of age to vote. Also a Life
Membership is available for a one time fee of $150. The membership year runs
from July 1st to June 30th of the next year.
