"The War of Northern Aggression" was for years called the "War of Southern Independence," later officially known in the South as "The War Between the States" (TWBTS). The yankee version of this "Civil War"....which it was not since it was between two distinct nations...seems to be taking over. But there is a language in War:
Yankee name . . . . . . . . .Freedom fighter name
. ."Bull Run". . . . . . . . . . . . . . . "Manassas"
. ."Pittsburg Landing". . . . . . . . . "Shiloh
. ."Antitiem". . . . . . . . . . . . . . . "Sharpsburg"
. ."Stone's River". . . . . . . . . . . "Murfreesboro"
. ."Beaver Dam Creek" . . . . . . "Mechanicsville"
. ."Chaplin Hills". . . . . . . . . . . ."Perryville"
. ."Fair Oaks". . . . . . . . . . . . . . "Seven Pines"

As for the Scot-English invasions and counter-invasions. A lot of the American South was settled by Scots or Scot-Irish. And a lot came over in 1620's and after 1745 as the Scottish lands were taken over by barons. Because of Slavery and after the WBTS the poverty of the area, the White population remained pretty much as it was in 1780...it was mostly Scottish or English. And though huge changes have taken place since the introduction of air conditioning and the opening of the region in the 1960's...it's still pretty much the norm. The best book written about the South of pre-1965 is still "The Mind of the South." A historical capsule of what the region we grew up in was.
