Shepherdstown Battlefield Preservation Association
The Shepherdstown Battlefield Preservation Association Inc. (SBPA) is a non-profit organization, dedicated to preserving the site of the Civil War battle at Shepherdstown, West Virginia. The battle fought there on September 19 and 20, 1862, brought to an end the Army of Northern Virginia’s Maryland Campaign and was a significant factor in General Robert E. Lee’s decision to retreat farther into the Shenandoah Valley. This threatened battlefield is of significant historical value to our nation and a valuable West Virginia Landmark.
