Jacob Funk Miller farm marked by SHAF

For many years SHAF has marked the sites of Headquarters and Hospitals related to the Maryland Campaign of 1862. Of course we do this only with the property owners’ permission, and at no cost to them. We also put ” private property” on the signs to protect the privacy of the residents 

This farm belonged to Jacob Funk Miller, brother of David R. Miller, the owner of the famous Cornfield on Antietam Battlefield. Soldiers of the Ninth Corps were treated in the barn and Gen. Burnside used the house as his headquarters. The current owners are very happy to display these signs to illustrate the historical importance of their farm. If you, or someone you know, own a property that is connected to the  Maryland Campaign, and would like a sign, please let us know.
