Several area Civil War battlefield sites are being prepared for Park Day on Saturday, when volunteers will spend the morning raking leaves, removing trash, and restoring the historic sites.
Park Day is an initiative of the Civil War Preservation Trust. The group expects more than 90 sites in 21 states to participate in the tenth annual event.
Coordinators at the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park and the Chattanooga National Cemetery will be leading volunteers in clean-up and restoration efforts Saturday from 8:30 to noon at both sites.
