ST. LOUIS (AP) - Volunteers in Missouri will participate next month in an effort to clean and restore Civil War sites.

The Civil War Trust is coordinating the cleanup on April 6, dubbed Park Day. Nationwide, more than 100 historic sites in 24 states will be cleaned.

In Missouri, that will include the Battle of Athens State Historic Site at Revere; the Battle of Lexington State Historic Site at Lexington; the Fort Davidson State Historic Site at Pilot Knob; Lone Jack Civil War Battlefield and Soldier's Cemetery and Museum at Lone Jack; and Wilson's Creek National Battlefield at Republic.

The Civil War Trust says Missourians interested in volunteering should check its website.
