    You mean Sharpsburg? McClellan removed from command after his hesitation.

    As they say in the NFL Network Fantasy Football commercial "Only winners get wings" and I guess they also get to name the battles. The names of the battles are Bull Run and Antietam. It is obvious that us Northerners are geographicaly challenged. We really dont know where we are most of time. Very obvious in the Civil War. Just be glad that the war was not a hundred years later or the names of most battles would have been exit numbers.

    If the Civil War had been fought a hundred years later, the Confederates would probably have gotten as far north as Binghamton on the country's improved roads. Instead of Gettysburg, it would have been called the Battle of I-81/SR17.
