The Civil Warriors Round Table will hold its next meeting of 2018 at 7PM on Wednesday, May 9th, at Weilers Deli in West Hills, CA. We will be hosting a tripleheader with speakers discussing another two heritage groups plus our own Civil Warriors Scramble 2018 game competition.
In 2018 the CWRT is looking at topics that connect us contemporaries more personally to the War. With this theme in mind, Carole Morton will kick off our meeting with a review of the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War (DUVCW) heritage society. In a similar vein Johnny Holland will talk about the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) society. The origins of these groups will be presented along with highlights of their objectives and accomplishments at the national and local levels. They’ll also touch on what it takes to qualify for membership.
Just how Civil War-savvy are you? The closing feature of the Civil Warriors’ May meeting will be a combination education/entertainment/ competition activity, moderated by Dave Goracke, called “Civil Warriors Scramble 2018.” The game is broadly similar to the popular Jeopardy TV contest. The game provides an answer and you must provide the appropriate question. It features teams, Civil War categories, increasingly difficult questions and a final Hail Mary chance to win for a team trailing in points. The discussion following each question will be an education in itself. So, be sure to sharpen your thinking cap for this one!
Carole Morton is a long time Civil Warrior and is an active officer in the DUVCW. She has made several presentations to groups in the area including her last talk to the Civil Warriors on the origins of Memorial Day. Johnny Holland is also a long time Civil Warrior and has been active in the SCV for many years, He last spoke to the Warriors on the topic of his discovery and pursuit of a grand medallion of the president of the GAR. Dave Goracke is the Program Coordinator for the Civil Warriors CWRT. Dave has made several presentations to SoCal CWRT’s and other historical groups.
