The Gettysburg Foundation is grateful for the support of the Civil War Roundtable of Gettysburg for its donation to Children of Gettysburg 1863. At its roundtable meeting on Sept. 22, 2022, Civil War Roundtable of Gettysburg president Bruce Davis presented a check for $500 to the Gettysburg Foundation for its children's history museum that opened in September 2021.
