Bienvenue!

Founded in 1991, The Civil War Round Table of Acadiana (CWRTA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study, discussion, and commemoration of the American Civil War (1861-1865) in south-central Louisiana — the heart of the Cajun and Creole region known as "Acadiana."

The CWRTA meets in New Iberia, Louisiana, on the third Tuesday of each January, May, and September. Meetings are held at the Ramada New Iberia, located at 2915 Highway 14 (across from Lowe's).

The public need not join the CWRTA to attend the meetings. For those interested in becoming members, however, annual membership is $10.00 per individual or $15.00 per couple. Dues are payable each January. 

An optional dinner prepared each meeting by hotel staff is $20.00 per person.

Regardless of your membership status, please let the CWRTA know at least three days in advance of a meeting that you will attend and if you will purchase the optional meal.
