The Civil War Trust is looking for volunteers to clean and restore battlefields, including sites in Kentucky and Tennessee for its 17th annual Park Day, scheduled for April 6th.  Volunteers will be asked to rake leaves, haul trash, paint signs and plant trees.  The nationwide event encompasses 100 historic sites in 24 states.  The sites in our region include Fort Donelson in Dover, Tennessee and Columbus-Belmont State Park in western Kentucky.  Those interested can find more information at civilwar.org.
