Trivia Question: The Battle of Antietam Creek is also known by what name after the nearby town?
Answer: The Battle of Sharpsburg
Battles from the American Civil War often bear two different names based on what the Northerners and Southerners called them. In the North, battles were known by nearby geographic features generally. In the South, however, these battles were often known by the name of the nearest settlement.

Founder of IHP, husband to a great wife (my best friend), and dad to 5 wonderful kids. Big fan of history, quizzes, and just about anything trivia related. I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
