Great idea!

Forming a Civil War Round Table is quite easy.  To my knowledge there is no formal process.  In other words a simple declaration on your part is all that is needed.  I guess you have hereby created the Eastern Shore Civil War Round Table.

When I started as President of the Fort Worth Civil War Round Table in 1996 we had a small mailing list and meetings were attended by 15-20 people.  Over the years we have built our list, added a website and promoted the meetings by e-mail.  We now have 50-80 in attendance.  We don't do any advertising.  We have added almost all members by word of mouth.

The key, in my view, is having good programs.  If you make it informative and interesting, they will come.

I don't think you need more than 5 to 10 dedicated people to start the ball rolling.  Go to it.  If you need help on the way, I would be glad to supply more information on what we do.
