Thread Name: Folklore: Where is Dixie
Subject: BS: Where is Dixie
I find in the titles of many songs the word Dixie, I understand this to be a region in the Southern USA which starts below the "Mason Dixon Line" It would I think include Verginia, the Caroliners, and Georgia but does it include Florida, Mississippi, Lousiana, and Alabama and does it stretch as far as Texas. Also was the Mason Dixon Line a railroad and where did it start and end.
Cheers Bill
