LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Seven Civil War sites in Kentucky will get a scrubbing next month, and the Civil War Trust is asking for volunteers from around the state.

Park Day will be March 31. Starting times vary at each site.

In Kentucky, the sites are Battle for the Bridge Historic Preserve in Munfordville; Battle of Richmond Park, Richmond; Columbus Belmont State Park, Columbus; Fort Boone Civil War Battle Site, Frankfort; Fort Duffield, West Point; Northern Kentucky Civil War Fortification System, Fort Wright; and Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site.
