fitting and proper
On Sept 17, 1863, the Civil War battle of Antietam Creek or just, Antietam, took place.
It is known as the bloodiest day in US History.
The term “Antietam” is thought to derive from an Algonquian phrase meaning “swift-flowing stream” according to Wikipedia.
Sometimes the word, the name and the place all come together.
