Thread Name: Folklore: Where is Dixie
Subject: RE: BS: Where is Dixie
Since no one has answered yet, allow me to say that 'Dixie' is a generic term for the South. Tradition says the Southland starts in Maryland at the Mason-Dixon Line. The western borders can sometimes be a little vague, depending on the sympathies of the speaker.
