A tornado ravaged cemetary in Ringgold is getting a much needed face-life.
It is part of a nationwide effort called Park Day.
Dedicated volunteers spent their day at Anderson Cemetery.
They mowed the lawn and placed confederate flags on some sites.
The self-proclaimed history buffs are teaming up with the Civil War Trust.
Their mission is to clean and preserve historic treasures.
Each volunteer, as we found out, came with an interesting story.
Steve Hall, says, "I've had family that has fought in every war that we had, up to the present. And I had two ancestors that fought right here in Chickamauga, and fought through Ringgold Gap."
Tim Sanford, another volunteer, adds, "Even one of my uncles was a 37th Ohio Calvary Captain on the Union side. And I'm still researching to find out if he's my ancestor's son or brother."
Park Day is now in it's 16th year.
