About the Michgan Regimental Round Table


Our Monday, July 16 Meeting

Our Monday, July 16 Meeting is two weeks earlier than normal. The meeting begins at 6:30 pm in the basement of the Farmington Library (Grand River and Farmington Road).

Our Monday, July 16, 2018 program will be the long-awaited return of our "Show and Tell" program. Image: Civil War MemorabiliaThis is your opportunity to bring a Civil War relic to share with us. Maybe someone will be able to add to the story of the relic. Please share with us the story of a Civil War ancestor that you have been researching. A great book on the Battle(s) of Chickamauga and Chattanooga will help us get ready for our fall trip. Any Civil War related item will add to the enjoyment of the evening.

If someone has a story about their favorite and least favorite Civil War general we will be glad to hear it. This will be a fun evening!

Our trip committee will begin to accept payments for our trip to Chattanooga & Chickamauga. We may write one check for $195 to cover the tour guide, bus fees, and Saturday night banquet. If someone wants to go just on the battlefield tours the cost is $150 and if an individual wants to sign up just for the Saturday banquet the cost is $45. We may bring our checks to the meeting or mail them to our Treasurer, Jeanie Graham at her home at 29835 Northbrook, Farmington Hills, MI 48334-2326. Please make the checks out to Jeanie Graham. as the Bamnk will not accept checks made out to the Roundtable.

What We Do

We meet monthly to hear from our members on the latest books, issues of preservation, and other items of Civil War interest. At each meeting, a keynote speaker provides a presentation on a Civil War topic. A monthly newsletter is mailed to members. In addition, each October MRRT members travel to a Civil War battlefield for a weekend tour (Click on the Annual Field Trip Menu selection in the horizontal menu at the very top of this page for a complete list.)

In 2015, from October 11–12 Chuck Lott and Darryl Smith will be our guides for a tour of the Perryville, Kentucky battlefield.

For 2016, we will be visiting the Antietem, Maryland Battlefield October 8th and 9th, 2016.
