Civil War Trust Park Day at Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site
May 23, 2015 Sign up starts at 8:00 a.m. in Civil War Hall
As our nation commemorates the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War, volunteers across the country will once again answer their nation’s call to service. On Saturday, May 23, 2015, history buffs, community leaders and preservationists will team up with the Civil War Trust, to participate in the 18th annual Park Day at Perryville Battlefield.
Perryville has been the grateful recipient of several acres recently purchased by the Civil War Trust. We are working hard to return these areas to their wartime appearance. Please come out and help remove fences and clean out old buildings. We will be burning large brush piles as well and doing general trail clean up.
Please wear long pants, work boots and bring work gloves with you. We could also use wire cutters and brush cutters on our fence removal projects. Civil War Trust t-shirts are provided for adults as well as patches for the kiddos. Lunch and drinks will be provided by the Friends of Perryville. Come on out and help us restore this historic landscape!
If you have any questions please call the park at 859-332-8631 or email email@example.com.
