I like the song ‘Dixie’ even though I don’t agree with the Confederate cause. My excuse. Number one: it was written by a northerner. Number two: it was one of Lincoln’s favorite songs and he was the south’s worst enemy! And number three: Yankee Doodle was written by the British before Americans made it their own. So if that can be done with Yankee Doodle, that can also be done with Dixie. I think it’s a cheery tune honestly.
