Thread Name: how do you pronounce Antietam?
Subject: RE: how do you pronounce Antietam?
I've never heard that extra syllable in the name, Kat.

I grew up with a mother who was a precocious youthful reader and often mis-calculated the pronunciations of words that she didn't hear spoken until she was older. She continued with several of those pronunciations as an adult. Used to drive us nuts. ;-)
