Dedicated to preserve the History and Stories of The American Civil War
To stimulate new scholarship on the Civil War, every other year KCWRT presents the Albert Castel Book Award to the author of the best recent book on the Civil War in the Western Theater.
To help promote local interest in the Civil War, KCWRT awards an annual prize for the best Civil War-related entry in the Kalamazoo District Michigan History Day Competition.
KCWRT has conducted fund raisers to support numerous preservation efforts over the years. Generally, this is in the form of a donation to a preservation fund organized to save a specific Civil War site from development.
The Kalamazoo Civil War Round Table was founded in 1957 to support an interest in the American Civil War. We are devoted to education, social exchange, and historic preservation. Meetings are free and open to all regardless of race, religion, gender, or knowledge of the Civil War. Guests and visitors are always welcome.
