Thread Name: how do you pronounce Antietam?
Subject: RE: how do you pronounce Antietam?
Was in Atlanta last week where it was referred to as "The War of Northern Aggression". My great-grandfather whom I used to cadge candy from when I was a lad was at Gettysburg (Union side) which, as far as I know, was the only battle whose name both sides agreed upon. Another great-grandfather was with Sheridan in Virginia. The only pronunciation I ever heard from the family was An-tee'-tum.
