Thread Name: how do you pronounce Antietam?
Subject: RE: how do you pronounce Antietam?
Has anyone else run across the first pronunciation I posted? I'd be curious to know if it was indigenous to a certain area, i.e. the Rocky Mountains, as I think that is where I first heard it.

Dai, the US South? (I thought you were cross the pond?)

I'll never forget when we first moved to New England. We kept seeing monuments to the "War of the Rebellion." Finaly asked Rog about it since he'd grown up there. It was the North's reference to the "Civil War." Not once did we see anything referring to the latter.
