We feature smart, groundbreaking research and well-written narratives from expert writers.

American Revolution Round Tables (ARRTs) are devoted to the study of all aspects of the American Revolution and Revolutionary War.  Composed of historically-minded individuals, each ARRT provides a forum for the exploration, discussion, and sharing of knowledge about this critical period of our country’s history. All are welcome to join in this enlightening and enjoyable pursuit, regardless of knowledge level or background.

Each ARRT typically hosts four to six meetings a year, which sometimes includes a cocktail hour and usually a dinner, followed by a speaker or other discussion as part of its main program. Speakers include authors of recent Revolutionary War books, those promoting the preservation of Revolutionary War heritage and sites, and other experts in the field.

Each ARRT is an independent entity and serves its local area.  If you are interested in joining one, and we hope you are, you might consider the one closest to you.  Membership benefits generally include being on a newsletter list that discusses upcoming local events related to the Revolutionary War and meetings.  Most ARRTs charge for the dinners that are served, although not every ARRT serves a dinner.  You can also attend meetings without joining the ARRT.

Here is a list of the participating ARRTs who are sponsoring this advertisement, their locations, next meetings and contact information. The list is in order of north to south, based on meeting locations. Please contact one of us now!

    1. Brian that is a fantastic idea!
