The Mosby Heritage Area Association, the nonprofit preservation and education organization, needs volunteers to help maintain the pristine, historic look of the Atoka village, formerly called Rector’s Crossroads, on Saturday, April 2 at 1:00 p.m.

This initiative is part of a nationwide clean-up effort sponsored by the Civil War Trust, a nonprofit organization devoted to the preservation of America’s hallowed battlegrounds.

Park Day at Atoka will begin at the historic Caleb Rector House, 1461 Atoka Road, Marshall, Virginia, 20115.  Volunteers will be asked to clean up the historic village, a common rendezvous site for Mosby’s Rangers and site of a June 21, 1863 Civil War battle.

Before the clean-up begins, volunteers will enjoy a historical program that puts the Civil War history that occurred on the landscape in context.  Refreshments will be served.

Please dress for outside work with good boots and gloves and, if possible,  bring a rake.

For more information, or to RSVP for the event, please contact the Mosby Heritage Area Association at 540-687-6681 or info@mosbyheritagearea.org.
