Display at the new Shepherdstown Library

A new display will soon be open to the public in the Local History Room of the new Shepherdstown Library. When you visit, ask to see the battle maps and fund-raising efforts to preserve the Far Away Farm.

A large, mounted map shows troop movements during the battle at the Cement Mill and on Trough Road, created by the American Battlefield Trust (ABT).

There are free smaller maps, SBPA pamphlets and information about our partners including the ABT, Jefferson County Historic Landmarks Commission and Jefferson County Farmland Protection Board.

Shepherdstown Public Library Director Hali Taylor and SBPA President Dr. Mike Nickerson stand with a map of troop movements that occurred during the 2-day Battle of Shepherdstown.
