The Civil War Round Table of St Louis is a not-for-profit organization for anyone interested in the factual history of the American Civil War era (1861 - 1865). We are located in St Louis, Mo. Our meetings about the Civil War include dinner, experts on the Civil War, as well as a social get together for friendly discussions of the Civil War and a trivia contest. Or, if you prefer, you can come to our speaker's Civil War presentation only.
We welcome all who are interested in the Civil War whether they live in the metro St. Louis, Missouri or Illinois area or just visiting.
Pat Falci gained fame not only for his role as the General A.P. Hill, from Gettysburg, but also as director/screenwriter Ron Maxwell’s historical advisor for both that movie and Gods and Generals.
Pat provided casting director Joy Todd and the actors with photographs
and research for both films and even scouted out locations in Maryland
and took Maxwell on a Stonewall Jackson tour of Civil War battlefields
and other historical sites. Pat, a native of Astoria, served as Jeff
Shaara’s historical advisor, providing research and tours of Civil War
sites portrayed in his books, and vetted John Jakes’s manuscripts for On Secret Service and Charleston, at its editor’s request.

Before the end of 1865, efforts were made to locate graves of men who had died during the conflict. An early tabulation showed that more than 9,000 Confederate prisoners of war were buried in Northern cemeteries. Most of these graves were marked. Yet "from some unknown cause” a relatively small graveyard near Alton, Illinois, prison was reported by Lt. Asa B. Isham of the
Seventh Michigan Cavalry to hold an astonishing 662 unidentified bodies of men who fought in gray.
