   The Buffalo Civil War Round Table (BCWRT) is a group of like-minded people who have a love of history, especially the Civil War. The central focus of meetings is the history and battles of the Civil War. The RT was formed in 1958 to mark the centennial of America’s most costly human conflict that took up words of 650,000 American lives. People with any level of interest will enjoy our presentations!

   The RT has five meetings a year. We feature local and nationally renowned experts/historians. We sponsor Lincoln Day every February at the Buffalo History Museum. This annual event is the longest running celebration of our 16th president’s birthday in the entire nation!

   Membership includes an informative newsletter. The organization maintains a website, www.buffalocivilwar.com as well as a fb page.

   The RT is called the BCWRT Ben Maryniak Chaptor in honor of local historian & past president, the late Ben Maryniak.

   The organization may be contacted by writing to the above address. New members are always welcome with dues an affordable $20 annually. Non-members are welcome as well, with a donation of 5 dollars.
