Although this was never a goal when the CDCWRT first started donating monies for preservation activities, by 2003 it became an unofficial goal to top one million dollars in actual funds plus matching funds. We had hoped to do this during the Sesquicentennial, and we have achieved that target by the end of 2012. Over the years, many people have contributed their time and energies to attain this goal. At the national level, the efforts of the Civil War Trust in brokering matching deals, has contributed to the lion’s share of this figure. The estimated cash value of the Round Table’s donation is $188,684, which is still very impressive. The match average is 6 to 1.

The Round Table is still looking for someone or several members to serve as Refreshment Chair. The Round Table provides a budget for soda, water and snacks for meetings, but we need some volunteers to bring the items, set up for the meeting, and clean up afterwards. We generally have 10 meetings a year so if the task is divided by several volunteers, it would amount to 3-5 times per year. Anyone interested should talk to Fran McCashion or Mary Ellen Johnson.

Founded in 1984, the Capital District Civil War Round Table is a non-profit, tax exempt educational organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code.  Our purpose is to foster education, awareness and respect for America's historic heritage, with special focus on the Civil War period.  We are dedicated to the preservation of Civil War sites nationwide, and we are a lifetime member of the Civil War Trust (CWT).  We currently have over 150 members.  Click here for more information.
