Civil War site cleanup day scheduled next month

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Organizers are looking for volunteers to help clean up and restore 10 Civil War sites in Kentucky.

The event on April 5 is part of Park Day, an effort that the Civil War Trust says will involve about 100 sites in 26 states.

Activities may include such chores as raking leaves and hauling trash to painting signs and planting trees. Volunteers will receive a T-shirt and have the chance to hear a local historian talk about the site's significance.

Sites in Kentucky are located in Covington, Frankfort, London, Louisville, Munfordville, Nancy, Perryville, Prestonsburg, Richmond and West Point.
