I'm copying this from the Ohio at Perryville blog and the Friends of Perryville Facebook page. I am not sure I will make it as I may be needed at the Ramage Museum, but I certainly encourage anyone who can help to do so. It's a beautiful place and helping it, especially in advance of the big re-enactment in October, is a great thing to do.
Volunteer Help Needed!

Please come out and help us get the park ready for the nation to visit. We are working on several projects including preparation for the 150th Event. We are also working with the Civil War Trust that weekend to clean up some of the recent additions to the preserved battlefield that was recently acquired.
Please come to Civil War Hall on Saturday September 8 between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. We will have coffee and donuts for you.
Please pack a lunch and we will provide drinks! Wear good shoes and bring gloves. If you have any questions please call the park at 859-332-8631.
