Thirty-five years ago, a few dedicated men and women gathered together to form the Knoxville Civil War Roundtable. The challenges and obstacles which they faced in the beginning were many and it is only through their efforts and hard work that the KCWRT came to occupy the special and successful place in Knoxville history that it enjoys today.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the formation of the Knoxville Civil War Roundtable and we would like to invite each and every one of you to join us in recognizing and honoring our organization’s 35 anniversary. Please come and help us celebrate our 35th anniversary in a special way. The celebration will be held at out monthly Roundtable meeting on April10, 2018.

We will kick off this celebratory evening by featuring the honorable George Lane as Master of Ceremonies. George will be raffling off t-shirts, pens, and Civil War books and we will also have a special Anniversary cake to commemorate the occasion. A large assortment of Civil War and World War II books will also be offered for sale at the meeting at a discounted price.

If you are running out of room at home for your own collection of history books, please consider donating some of them to the Roundtable, so that we can offer them for sale at our April Meeting.

Remember, the annual membership dues charged by the Roundtable only cover a small percentage of our administrative costs and we heavily depend on alternative sources of revenue to help us offset expenses.

Please plan to come in “period” costume if you have one, as we look forward to hearing Dr. James “Bud” Robertson, Historian, College Professor and Author, speak to our membership on “The Eastern and Western Military Theaters: Which Was Most Important?”

We look forward to seeing all of you there.


As a part of the Knoxville Civil War Roundtable’s 35th Anniversary Celebration, the organization is offering for sale a huge collection of Civil War and World War II books at its monthly meeting on April10, 2018. The books cover a wide variety of subjects and should be of major interest to the true history buff.

For used books, these steeply discounted books offer the best prices in town and should afford the reader countless hours of entertainment and enjoyment from the comfort of the nearest arm chair. If you are looking for a super deal on books from the Civil War and World War II eras of history, then you will not want to miss out on this fantastic opportunity to replenish and add to your own private library. The tables in the Bearden Banquet Hall will be literally groaning with the amazing arsenal of donated books for you to peruse. Please plan to come early and be prepared to marvel at the amazing treasures that will be there waiting for you!
