Rappahannock Valley Civil War Round Table - Fredericksburg, Virginia


Virtual August Meeting

We will not be having an in-person dinner meeting in August. The safety and well-being of our members are primary concerns, especially during our current public health crisis. A majority of member respondents during a recent survey had concerns about current conditions/restrictions and advised they would not attend a meeting at this time. 

What we will do is expand our horizons a bit with a virtual meeting on Monday evening, August 10.  The meeting will be professionally monitored, moderated and run via ZOOM. This will allow you to view a speaker in real time via your computer. If you can’t make the meeting, a video will be subsequently posted on our website/Facebook page. Details will be forthcoming via e-mail and on our social media. Colonel Marc Thompson, USAF, the former President of RVCWRT, will be presenting “The First Battle of Manassas and the Experience of War.” Keep an eye out for more information! 

For the Interns:

As things start to open up and we hope to be together soon, we are excited in the fact that the interns for the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park will be coming. They will face new challenges as other interns have not before. We would like to welcome them to Fredericksburg.

For interested interns, under the information tab, you will find a link to the application to apply for the 2020 Intern Scholarship. Please read the instructions for applying.

We hope you have a great summer!
