New SHAF Logotype

The SHAF board of directors is pleased to present our new logo.

SHAF Logo 2008
We determined last year to incorporate into our logo what is perhaps the single most recognizable Civil War battlefield icon, the lower bridge, today known as Burnside’s Bridge. Our new logo says “Antietam” at a glance, and was designed by Eric Olson, a Shepherd University Art and Graphic Design student.

SHAF merchandise and promotional literature featuring the Bridge logo will be available in the near future.
