The     Phil     Kearny     Civil     War     Round     Table       
independent   historical   organization   which   focuses   on   the
American    Civil    War    period    (1861-1865)    studying    the
military, political and social effects during that period.
The   Round   Table   was   originally   formed   as   the   41st   New
Jersey   Infantry   Round   Table   meeting   at   a   Barnes   &   Noble
Book   Store   in   Woodland   Park,   NJ   over   twenty   years   ago.
As   we   grew   larger,   our   name   was   changed   to   honor   the
famed   one   armed   NJ   Civil   War   General   Phil   Kearny,   and
we met in a larger venue at the Wayne Public Library.
Today,   PKCWRT   usually   meets   on   the   third   Wednesday   of
the   month   at   the   Hasbrouck   Heights   Municipal   Building    at
7:00pm   -   downstairs.   We   have   summers   off,   July   & August
and    reconvene    in    September.    All    are    welcomed    to
attend.
Historians,   authors   and   noted   experts   speak   on   specific
scholarly     Civil     War     topics     to     our     membership     with
questions and answers encouraged.
In   November,   the   Phil   Kearny   Round   Table   sponsors   an
annual   field   trip   to   a   Civil   War   battlefield,   where   licensed
guides educate and tour the battlefield with our members.
Membership,   which   helps   fund   expenses   for   the   Round
Table    and    pays    speaker    stipends,    is    $25    a    year    and
includes   membership   newsletters   of   recent   and   upcoming
events.
Also    in    December,    we    have    a    Holiday    Party,    where    a
noted   speaker   or   civil   war   musician   will   be   the   highlight   of
our   annual   dinner.   The   Round   Table   welcomes   everyone
and hopes you will join and become a supporting member.
The   Round   Table   is   named   after   New   Jersey   Civil   War
General    Philip    Kearny,    who    was    killed    at    the    Battle    of
Chantilly   in   September   1862.   The   town   of   Kearny,   New
Jersey was later named for the General.
