Puget Sound Civil War Roundtable

Civil War Education, Remembrance and Preservation

The Last Word


By Mark R. Terry
Not much to say this month, except SUPPORT THE ROUND TABLE THROUGH THE ANNUAL AUCTION! I think I’ve previously written and said everything about it that I can. Now it’s up to you- and I- to put actions behind our words by showing up at the April meeting and being as generous as possible. Bring donations to auction off and make sure to bid on items there.

One of the reasons the Washington Volunteer may look a little sparse this month is that right in the middle of preparing it, I ended up in the hospital with a blood clot in my left lung! It happened on Saturday, March 18 and I was in Swedish Edmonds until Friday, March 24. Now I’m on blood thinners and will be out for three months from work. I know not all of you knew this, though I did inform the board.

All of us deal with health challenges daily. My hat is off to you! Looking forward to the April meeting. Hope to see you there. God bless you!


The PSCWRT season goes from September to the following May. Dues should be paid in September. They are payable either at the meeting or by mail: $20 per individual, $25 for a couple. Also, donations are gratefully accepted. These will help secure speakers for our meetings.

Please note that all donations are tax deductible as the PSCWRT is a 501(c)3 organization. Mail to: Jeff Rombauer, Treasurer, 22306 255th Ave. SE, Maple Valley, WA 98038-7626. Call 425-432-1346, or email: jeffrombauer@foxinternet.com.
We welcome your article or research submissions for the newsletter, but they may be edited. The deadline for the next Washington Volunteer is the last Monday of this month. Please have it in Mark Terry’s hands via email or snail-mail by then. Thank you!
