Sharpsburg...correct. All you have to know when figuring the names of Civil War battles is that the South would name the battle for the nearest town, while the north would name the battle after the closest body of water... e.g. Shiloh= Pittsburgh Landing...

The North and the South called it the Battle of Fredericksburg. Almost 1,900 soldiers from the North and South died in the battle along with thousands more wounded.

The North called it the First Battle of Bull Run, and South called it the first Battle of Manassas.

Good question. Many battles have two names, because the South would use the name of the nearest town, and the North used the name of the nearest river or other water-course (if any). Since it was the victorious North that wrote the history-books, and since Northerners greatly outnumber Southerners, the river-names have generally become the official designation, and the rest of the world tends to use these. So most people refer to Bull Run, although they know it's also called Manassas. In the case of Shiloh, it seems to be the other way round - even though Shiloh wasn't a town, just a little wooden church and a few huts. The North used the name Pittsburg Landing, yet the name Shiloh is almost universally used in relation to this battle.

Shiloh takes its name from a small church on the battlefield of the same name. It is ironic that "Shiloh" is a Hebrew word meaning A PLACE OF PEACE. The battle is also called the Battle of Pittsburg Landing deriving this name from the small trading community on the Tennessee River which is also a part of the battlefield.

Second Bull Run. The south called it Second Manassas.

Union (The North) forces called the Battle of Manassas the Battle of Bull Run .

The magnetic polarity of the location we call 'Magnetic North' is a south pole, and the polarity of the location we call 'Magnetic South' is a north pole.

The called it the Battle of Vicksburg, though, it was actually a siege.

It was called the Battle of Gettysburg by both the Union and the Confederates.

The Earth has a magnetic field around it. The magnetic North is close to what we call the North Pole. The magnetic South is at the South Pole. There is a magnetic North and South and a geographic North and South pole. is north-seeking (north pole) and one is south-seeking (south pole).

The North, or Union as they were also called, were called Blue Bellies by the South

The Nile River flows upward, so therefore they call the north part south and the south part north.

Magnetic North and Magnetic South (they are not 'poles') are located relatively near True North and True South, with their actual positions varying over time. However, the terms 'Magnetic North' and 'Magnetic South' describe these locations and have nothing whatsoever to do with their magnetic polarities. The magnetic polarity of the location we call Magnetic North is a south pole, and the magnetic polarity of the location we call Magnetic South is a north pole.

The end is the pole of the magnet - either north or south.

The south pole is defined as 90 degrees south latitude. I guess you might call that "-90 degrees north".

I suppose you could call them two unions. One was the United States of America (the North). And the other was the Confederate States of America (the South). The term 'Union' is always understood to mean the North.

The Battle of Shiloh was an early battle in the US Civil War. It gained fame because of the many soldiers who died in the battle. It was a two day battle and General Grant claimed the victory.
