SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — The National Park Service has completed a study of the Shepherdstown Battlefield and related resources.

Congress ordered the study to determine whether the Civil War battlefield should be added to the national park system. It could become an addition to either Harpers Ferry National Historical Park or Antietam National Battlefield in Maryland.

Tammy Stidham with the park service tells The Journal (http://bit.ly/1sOYwZz) that the study looked at historical significance, natural resources and economic uses.

Public comments on the study can be submitted online at www.parkplanning.nps.gov/SHBA. The deadline is Oct. 3.

The park service also will hold two public meetings. The first is scheduled Sept. 9 at the Antietam National Battlefield Visitors Center in Sharpsburg, Maryland. The second will be held Sept.11 at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center in Shepherdstown.
