Our Annual Summer Field Trip
Saturday August 10, 2019
On Saturday, August 10, 2019 the Rockland Civil War Round Table will be going on a summer field trip to the Civil War Weekend in Historic Richmondtown, Staten Island. The reenactment will be sponsored by the professional Liberty Rifles and will include demonstrations, encampment and presentations. The event will run from 10 am to 5 pm and will be an opportunity to interact with long time Civil War reenactors.
The RCWRT members who want to join us will meet at 10 am on August 10th at the main parking lot of Pearl River High School and we will car pool together. It is recommended that everyone bring a bottle of water with them.
Please contact us via email to confirm your plan to attend.
The Rockland Civil War Round Table is a non-profit organization founded in 1995 by Ken Dudonis and John Speight, that serves Rockland and Westchester Counties in NY, and Northern New Jersey. We are dedicated to exploring, discussing, understanding and preserving the history of the American Civil War.
We usually meet on a Wednesday of each month at 7:30 PM, usually at Pearl River High School's Pirate Cove in Pearl River NY. Changes in the meeting location, time or date are announced in advance. We meet 11 times a year. Our July meeting is usually a local field trip.
We secured a $250,000 Grant from NY State to repair and restore every single NY State Monument at Gettysburg.
We have established a preservation fund and make regular donations to battlefield preservation groups and memorial associations.
We make at least one long field trip a year to a battlefield with a recognized expert as our guide. We visited Gettysburg National Military Park in 2013, Lee’s Retreat from Gettysburg, PA and MD in 2012, Richmond Battlefield, VA in 2011, the Booth Escape Route, DC and VA in 2010 and Manassas Battlefield, VA in 2009. We have adopted the 124th NY Monument at Gettysburg and make at least one trip a year to “clean up” that position. This trip usually occurs in early to mid October.
Past speakers have included: Edward G.J. Richter, Sheriff James Kralik, Steve Laird, Guy Demasi, Charles La Rocca, Steven Wright, Jay Jorgensen, Thomas Dyja, Mike McAffee, Peter Vermilyea, Joe Bilby and many others. They have covered such diverse topics as, The Wilderness, Arms and Weapons, Civil War Music and Photography, North Carolina Troops, Richmond, Civil War Medicine and the Lincoln Assasination.
Annual dues for an individual are $30.00. Family and Junior memberships are also available. You are cordially invited to attend a few meetings to see if our Round Table is right for you.
