Promoting the study, discussion, and appreciation of our county's Civil War history

The Schuylkill County Civil War Roundtable was formed to promote the study, discussion, and appreciation of our ancestors in the American Civil War.  Our fellow countians were the
"First Defenders" of Washington, DC, dug the mine tunnel at Petersburg, and fought in all
the Army of the Potomac battles. Join us as we explore their acts of heroism,
bravery, sacrifice, cowardice, and glory.

The Pennsylvania Monument registration plate became available on Oct 30, 2014.
Proceeds from this plate go directly to the Veteran Trust Fund and will support
the cleaning, repair and restoration of the Pennsylvania monuments by the
Gettysburg National Military Park. To apply for it, complete
Form MV-911, "Application for Special Fund Registration Plate.".
