No. Although major battles such as Antietam and Gettysburg took place in Northern states (Maryland, Pennsylvania), the vast majority of battles took place during the invasion of the South by Union forces.

False. The majority of the battles were fought in Virginia and Tennessee - both southern states - as well as other southern states. The Confederacy did invade some northern territory, but since the North was trying to bring the South to heel, the majority of the fighting was in the South.
