Civil War Trust Park Day, 2014

 
For everyone who hasn't heard, April 5 will be this year's CWT Park Day. Park Day is an open call for volunteers to help preserve and maintain Civil War battlefields. Park Day has been hosted since 1996 and is a great day to give back while spending the day at a historic site.


This is a great chance to get to spend the day at big Civil War sites like Gettysburg or Antietam but also to visit smaller and little known sites. Each site has its own list of tasks for volunteers. Some of the cemeteries and battlefields just need general landscape maintenance other sites need help with organizing, record keeping or restoration.

I'm always interested in hearing who is going where? Does anyone have any plans for Park Day?

    1. The closest one to us is Fort Delaware. It's about an hour from here.

    2. Hmmm, I might look into if I can take a bus there. Man, I can't wait to move to Michigan. I'd be close to their battlefield, I believe.

  2. I'm going to Gettysburg. I've gone every year since I started driving. It's a fun time and you get to learn and do things you'd never be able to do any other time.
