NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee battlefields and historic sites are getting a spring cleaning this weekend, thanks to the American Battlefield Trust and volunteers.

The Tennessee volunteers will work at 13 sites during the event Saturday, called Park Day. The organization says thousands of volunteers across the country will work to clean up and revitalize 160 historic sites in 32 states.

Workers perform mostly outdoor activities, ranging from raking leaves and collecting trash to painting and gardening.

T-shirts will be given to volunteers, and some sites provide lunch or refreshments. At some locations, a local historian may talk about the role of the site in U.S. history.

Starting times vary. Anyone interested in volunteering should contact individual sites listed online at http://www.battlefields.org/parkday .
